AFuzion's DO-278A Training, Gap Analysis, & Consulting Chosen by 3 of World's Top 5 New CNS/ATM Developments

August 18, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
August 18, 2016 - Three of the world's top five new CNS/ATM developments chose AFuzion Inc.'s DO-278A training, gap analysis, and consulting services division. Commercial and military ground-based air traffic management systems are increasingly being required to comply with DO-278A. Why? Because Communication, Navigation, Surveillance / Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) systems are becoming increasingly important while simultaneously becoming more complex. CNS/ATM systems are deployed throughout the world and beyond: on the ground, in the air, and in space. AFuzion's DO-278A services cover DO-278A training, DO-278A Gap Analysis, and DO-278A consulting. A combination of AFuzion's DO-278A services were chosen by, and delivered in 2016, to three of the world's most important new DO-278A deployments of 2015 2016.

States AFuzion's Chris Jackson: "We've been in aerospace for almost thirty years and knew DO-278A would become increasingly important , just like DO-178 twenty years ago. AFuzion's engineers spent much of the last two years coordinating worldwide to further enhance our DO-278A capabilities. Some people think they know or can do DO-178C therefore they're "good" for DO-278A. Wrong. DO-278A is a unique realm with many, many differences. Yes, we literally wrote the book (the world's best-selling book) on DO-178 but that didn't make us DO-278A experts: we've worked on many CNS/ATM systems and devoted significant resources to developing our proprietary DO-278A training, templates, gap analysis, and services. Winning three of the world's top five DO-278A contracts of the past two years simply confirms our expertise and vision."

AFuzion's engineers developed the world's first DO-178 training in 1988 and the world's first DO-178 gap analysis in 1989 (for Hughes Aircraft where one of AFuzion's founders was a Hughes Fellow). That training and gap analysis content has remained his sole, personal intellectual property since then, as are the dozens of technical papers he wrote after founding TekSci and HighRely. AFuzion's DO-278A training, gap analysis, and consulting carry on this tradition of excellence, with AFuzion's engineers having provided more DO-278 and DO-278A training and gap analysis activities than all other engineers in the world: combined.

Adds AFuzion's Vance Hilderman "It's really impressive that three of the world's top five CNS/ATM new developments chose AFuzion for some combination of DO-278A training, DO-278A Gap Analysis, and DO-278A consulting. Interestingly, each of those three clients were on different continents which is fitting since AFuzion's engineers have worked onsite in 35+ different countries. And these three companies vary considerably: one is large, one is mid-sized, and one is tiny. It's like an athletic coach: good coaches can help an average Joe, a super Jane, or an Olympic John: similar principles apply but experience and customization are required. That's what AFuzion excels at the market simply confirmed such."
