ARINC 661 UA and CDS Development Suite

Accelerate and de-risk the building of certified displays

Presagis ARINC 661 Development Suite is an integrated, end-to-end workflow environment for the entire lifecycle of ARINC 661 systems development: from requirements specification, design, and development through deployment and maintenance. The Suite provides a seamless workflow between development environments for the Cockpit Display System (CDS) and the User Application (UA) so you can create certifiable systems faster and more easily.
With the complete Presagis ARINC 661 Development Suite, an end-to-end runtime environment can be deployed both in a simulation and test environment in development labs and in embedded systems aboard aircraft.
ARINC 661 CDS Development Suite
The CDS Development Suite comprises the original VAPS XT ARINC 661 product, newly updated with features and fixes released in VAPS XT 4.1, and also includes the UA Emulator tool, which enables you to test and validate the CDS system independently of the UA application. Save valuable debugging time by being able to fully test and validate your CDS system before connecting to the UA system.
The ARINC 661 CDS Development Suite includes:
ARINC 661 UA Development Suite
The UA Development Suite with MathWorks Simulink® and Presagis VAPS XT addresses the challenges of UA development and simplifies the process of making ARINC 661-certified systems.
The UA Development Suite integrates with your existing tools and processes to de-risk and accelerate the creation of certifiable systems. By splitting UA systems and UA UI development into two distinct parts, systems experts can focus on system requirements and behaviors, and UI designers can focus on UI development using system values instead of low-level ARINC 661 messaging.
This new, abstracted architecture supports best practices recommended in ARINC 661 supplement 5 and uses a model-based design environment: both the system part and the UI part are developed with modeling tools to simplify the complexity of development.
The ARINC 661 UA Development Suite comprises:
  • Simulink, used for the modeling, validating, and testing of UA systems;
  • UA Accelerator (UA2), which creates a logical bridge for mapping ARINC 661 messaging that drives the CDS to UA System responses;
  • VAPS XT, which is used for Definition File creation;
  • UA Emulator (UAM), which enables you to simulate a CDS to completely test and validate UA systems independently of CDS development.
