US Army to collaborate with  Ansys and L3Harris on new missile system applications

Ansys has partnered with the US Army and L3Harris Technologies to boost the performance and efficiency of next-generation aeronautical and missile system applications.

Through the Joint Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Aviation & Missile Center (AvMC) has evaluated solutions that are commercially available to support the integration of FACE-compliant software.

The FACE Technological Standard allows software on embedded military computing systems to be interoperable, portable and stable.

The program developed by L3Harris and Ansys, aligned with the FACE Technical Standard and hosted on the Crew Mission System (CMS) platform, was used for the Cockpit Display Station (CDS) for CRADA.

The agreement reflects progress in demonstrating how model-based development methods such as Ansys SCADE and L3Harris ‘ FliteScene can support rapid standard-based integration in support of the FACE Technical Standard and the ARINC 661 standards.

U.S. Army Program Executive Office Aviation G10 Chief Tactical Division Joe Carter said: “With new threats and scarce resources, we urgently need to speed up the delivery of more equipment to our warfighters with less funding.

“Contributions from our industry partners, including Ansys and L3Harris, enable us to establish and refine the FACE Technical Framework, facilitating the rapid development of capabilities for our warfighters. It allows us to provide our Warfighters with a wide range of new and enhanced equipment from a variety of technology suppliers. “Are the main battle tanks still a worthwhile investment?

Yes No View Results Ansys SCADE software toolset enables a complete workflow from FACE modeling to DO-178C certified code-level generation.

The company’s tools support software development aligned with the FACE standard on the model, as well as the code level developed.

These also provide users with an simple workflow that passes through the FACE Conformance Test Suite (CTS) included in the FACE Technical Standard.

Ansys SCADE Solutions for ARINC 661 compliant systems fully comply with ARINC 661 standard, saving time and reducing effort and expense when designing cockpit display systems.

US Army Program Executive Office Aviation G10 Tactical Branch chief Joe Carter said: “With emerging threats and limited resources, we simply have to provide more capabilities to our warfighters faster with less funding.

“Contributions from our industry partners, including Ansys and L3Harris, help exercise and mature the FACE Technical Standard allowing rapid integration of capabilities for our warfighters. This enables us to provide our warfighters a wide variety of new and improved capabilities from any number of technology suppliers.”
