The world’s first COTS object-oriented DO-178 B qualified HMI tool, VAPS XT-178 is a safety-critical software package for creating embedded display graphics for avionics projects intended for RTCA DO-178 B certification. VAPS XT-178 retains the core features of the popular object oriented VAPS XT HMI tool and adds features that allow the end user to claim credit towards their certification requirements.
VAPS XT-178 is based on the popular object oriented VAPS XT HMI tool and retains all of the core features of this tool.
By greatly reducing the effort required within the software design, coding, and testing phases of the graphics display development lifecycle, VAPS XT-178 dramatically shortens the time required for developing certifiable embedded software products. The end user or customer may utilize the documents and test cases provided with the product in order to obtain credit for the tool qualification as part of the total system certification. VAPS XT-178 eliminates much of the qualification and testing the customer might need to accomplish in designing and certifying a proprietary, custom architecture in place of using a proven commercial-off-the-shelf software tool architecture.
VAPS XT-178 is the ideal software solution for the following applications:
VAPS XT-178 CertKit greatly reduces project certification risk for real-time, embedded, graphical avionic HMI applications developed and deployed using VAP XT-178.
Leverage the combined performance and reliability of VAPS XT and SeaWind in developing embedded graphics.

Release 4.0 also incorporates many general usability enhancements to the development environment in order to improve user workflow and productivity. Enhancements and features include:
The VAPS XT 3.2.1 patch adds support for Windows 7 in 32-bit compatibility mode.
VAPS XT and SeaWind now come pre-integrated on standard embedded platform configurations. Both VAPS XT and SeaWind have been tuned and optimized to ensure strong interoperability between the products.
The VAPS XT code generator CODE nGEN has been updated and improved to meet stringent coding standards, applying over 300 rules from MISRA C++, HIC++, Effective C++, JSF++, and internal Presagis coding standards.
A new demonstration DVD is now included with VAPS XT containing completed applications including the VAPS XT project files.
Integration with the SoftMap digital map software for the creation of applications with navigation maps directly in VAPS XT. SoftMap® is a product of General Dynamics, UK, used in generating platform independent software solutions for the display of multi-layered digital map, navigation, and terrain displays, as well as full tactical situation awareness systems. VAPS XT uses a new Digital Map object to manage placement of the digital map within an application. The Digital Map object is a container object which can contain Map, Intervisibility, Height-above-terrain (HAT), grid layers, two new Line Of Sight (LoS) layers, and VAPS XT overlays. An evaluation version of SoftMap is now provided with all versions of VAPS XT. To request a license for the SoftMap product, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
