TES Performs SBIR Phase I efforts to US Army Improved Turbine Engine Program – Common FADEC Controller aligned to FACE Technical Standard
TES developed data models, architectural concepts, and components for use in developing a common avionics to engine interface, including data modeling for general Full Authority Digital Engine Controller (FADEC) interfaces to the avionics suite. The Army’s intent is to have common reusable software for engine controllers that are Future Airborne Capabilities Environment (FACE™) Units of Portability (UoPs) and that also meet airworthiness or security requirements unique to the US Army. This would ensure that as engines are updated that integration with respect to the avionics suites in use by the Army is simplified and streamlined and also that the data model for common engine information is complete.
TES was contracted by MSI, performed, and delivered the program objective in 5-weeks.The Government was please that we met its expectations. TES used the TES-SAVi AWESUM® model-based tool suite to develop and delivery these product efforts.
