The Customer
About The Customer
NASA is the agency of the United States Federal Government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research, with more than 17,000 employees.
The Challenge
Rising development and maintenance costs comprise the key business challenge of testing and verification for NASA IV&V. Because of their complexity and stringent safety requirements, most NASA projects take many years to come to fruition.
The Solution
Wind River Simics, simulating a BAE RAD750 processor, enables target software to run on the virtual platform the same way it does on physical hardware. Along with Simics' capabilities of scripting, debugging, inspection and fault injection, it enables users to define, develop and integrate their systems without the constraints of physical target hardware.

Software Components
- Wind River Simics
Operational Impact
  • [Cost Reduction - R&D]
    TCO is reduced by eliminating hardware availability delays and bugs earlier in the development process.
  • [Process Optimization - Predictive Maintenance]
    Predictive maintenance are made possible by finding and fixing bugs faster, and enabling more hardware/software co-development.
Quantitative Benefit
  • By using Wind River Simics, 80% to 90% of the simulation models can be reused for other missions, representing tremendous cost savings for NASA.
  • The ITC team reduces costs by 93% and can replicate a complete instance of the simulator in a few hours.
