AdaCore, provider of tools and expertise for the mission-critical, safety-critical, and security-critical software communities, today announced that Airbus Military has successfully certified the Airbus Military Aerial Refueling Boom System (ARBS) on the A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT). The certification was simplified by the use of the qualified GNATcheck tool to verify conformance to the software coding standard required by the ARBS project. Verification of conformance was undertaken as part of the DO-178B level A Software Verification Process.

AdaCore announces the release of GNATemulator, an efficient and flexible emulator solution for testing embedded software applications. Based on the QEMU technology, a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer, the new GNATemulator tool allows software developers to compile code directly for their target architecture and run it on their host platform, through an approach that translates from the target object code to native instructions on the host.
