FORCE2C

Overview


It’s not easy, but we can work with you to make it easier

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Achieving certifiability is a serious business that can involve almost uncountable man hours and dollars. The COTS approach to certifiability is simpler and less expensive than doing it yourself –we’ve invested upfront and will partner with you to make the process more straightforward - and more cost-effective.

FORCE2C – COTS products with added artifacts

That’s right. The FORCE2C is a COTS product designed specifically for certifiability. It builds on our popular COTS products, but comes complete with DO-254 artifacts. No, they’re not everything you’ll need – but they’ll help you get where you’re going faster, and they can be used for multiple programs.

To minimize program risk we worked with a Designated Engineering Representative to audit our process and artifacts throughout the development, so you can integrate our products into your safety-certifiable system with confidence.

DO-254 / DO-178C certification compliant

Offered with artifacts suitable for inclusion in DAL D to DAL A flight systems. Lowering the cost and timescale of flight certifiable systems for our customers via the Abaco investment in certifiable COTS.

A problem shared is a problem halved.To minimize program risk we have had a Designated Engineering Representative auditing our process and artifacts throughout the development, so you can integrate our products into your safety-certifiable system with confidence.
