[Avionics Today 10-16-2014] Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) is using ANSYS solutions to develop next-generation primary flight display systems for aircraft.

Pilots rely on primary flight display systems for such vital aircraft information as air speed and altitude. CMC had been using a legacy tool that lacked the functionality to ensure compliance with DO-178B, a standard that determines whether the software will perform reliably in an airborne environment. By leveraging ANSYS SCADE Display, CMC is reducing total development time and costs while migrating legacy flight display code onto a more modern technology platform. 

SCADE Display is a graphics design and development environment for embedded human-machine interfaces.
