Abstract:

Operational Flight Programs are the software programs of avionics embedded computer systems. Not only is it desirable to be able to test and model Operational Flight Programs, it is essential. The consequences of not performing accurate Operational Flight Program testing can be devastating. Some of these include premature weapon releases, erroneous flight instrument displays, and complete system failure. In order to test Operational Flight Programs, there are several things one must know about the Operational Flight Program, its weapon system host, its support environment, and how to generate and perform its test. This paper will address these issues as it develops a strategy to test an Operational Flight Program.
