NASA Meets Satellite Project Testing and Verification Goals with Wind River Simics
Powerful High-Fidelity Simulator Minimizes Target Hardware Dependencies and Brings Significant Long-Term Cost Savings.
NASA’s Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) Program was founded as part of the agency’s strategy to provide the highest achievable levels of safety and cost-effectiveness for mission-critical software.
NASA IV&V’s primary business is software verification and validation. The program has more than 150 full-time employees and also leverages the expertise of in-house partners and contractors.
By using Wind River Simics, 80–90% of the simulation models can be reused for other missions, representing tremendous cost savings for NASA.
Download the success story to learn how with Simics, NASA IV&V successfully met its goals to develop a complete simulator with no hardware dependencies in a reduced time frame and at lower cost than if it had been developed using traditional hardware simulations.
