Press Release

The European Space Agency (ESA) has selected AdaCore to provide a qualified multitasking solution for spacecraft software development to support multiple ongoing and future ESA projects.

As part of this contract, AdaCore has implemented a pre-qualified version of the Ravenscar Small Footprint (SFP) library – a configurable Ada run-time library that implements the Ravenscar profile, allows customization for specific platforms and capabilities, and is suitable for qualification in different domains, particularly those in which certification or a reduced footprint is needed.

The result, a pre-qualified, multitasking runtime named Ravenscar SFP QUAL, targets Ada development on LEON2 and LEON3 boards. It is pre-qualified according to the European Cooperation for Space Standardisation’s (ECSS) Criticality Level B for software.
