The What, Why, and How of Application Portability for Aerospace Systems



Achieving application portability has been the ultimate goal of system suppliers in military and aerospace over the last decade. Driven by open architectures and open standards through industry and government collaboration, now reference implementations have started to emerge, showing that system separation, integration and safety certification challenges can be overcome in order to manage program affordability.

Join our on-demand webinar, “The What, Why, When and How of Application Portability” and get a technical overview on:

  • Solution introduction for platform optimization and code efficiency
  • Best practices for application development without compromising the integrity of the system
  • Development flow differences and optimal interactions between application developer, platform developer and system integrator


Olivier Charrier, Principal Functional Safety Specialist, Wind River

Olivier Charrier obtained a Master’s degree in Software Engineering (DESS) from Bordeaux University in 1989. Prior to joining Wind River, Olivier worked for Alsys/Aonix developing and integrating Ada development environment for embedded systems.

After an almost 4 years in the Ada95 engineering center of Aonix located in San Diego, California, Olivier moved back to a South European role, providing consulting on integrating Ada COTS development environment for Mission Critical Space programs. Olivier Joined Wind River in June 2001 as Senior Field Application Engineer for the South-western region of Europe dedicated to the Aerospace & Defence Market, supporting Thales, Airbus and Safran groups as well as their subcontractors.

In 2007 he became EMEA Aerospace & Defence Principal Engineer to support and coordinate EMEA wide A&D programs, provide consulting on Integrated Modular Avionics and the use of COTS Software Development environment and Operating Systems for Safety Critical systems, also participating in the definition of Wind River corresponding solutions in particular for Safety Certification using Multi-Core systems. In the same timeframe he joined the SAE/ARINC APEX Software Subcommittee to participate in the elaboration of the ARINC 653 standard.

Since January 2017 Olivier has been extending his scope to contribute to other markets, like Railway, Nuclear, Medical and Automotive, also adding new geos like APAC.
