Certification Together

Certification Together is an initiative to create exchanges between all types of companies involved in airborne projects facing certification challenges and provide expert solutions.

The main objective is to leverage the expertise and synergies of several internationally recognized expert companies in the certification of critical systems. This collaboration also involves graduate schools, R&D labs, as well as tool and component providers.
The Aerospace Valley competitiveness cluster headquartered in Toulouse (France), has selected Certification Together as their international Center of Expertise for Certification resource. It confirms that the entire Industry community benefits from our joint initiative.



Certification Together provides a structured offer to help companies achieve their certification objectives

This offer includes:

Training
for all the certification domains: ARP 4754 - ARP 4761 - DO-178B (C) - DO-254 - DO-160 - DO-278, etc.

Expert Consulting:
  • Audits to analyze gaps between the current situation of a project or process and what is required to meet the certification objectives (i.e. gap analysis)
  • Expert support during the Gap Filling, plan writing, process improvements, and other project activities
  • Support for preparation of certification audits (pre-certification audits)
  • Support for tool assessment and qualification
Support
to equipment manufacturers for monitoring their subcontractors, as well as supporting subcontractor process improvements to improve their autonomy regarding certification objectives

Technical expertise
for analysis and/or assessment of emerging solutions, tool qualification aspects and packages, COTS and IP and so on.



Certification Together also integrates animation and management of collaborative initiatives


Creation and management of User Groups, to exchange experiences and difficulties about new standards or updates of standards. The DO-254 User Group in both the US and Europe is a good example (learn more from www.do254.com);
  • Exchanges with aerospace engineering schools to provide them with good input for their training programs, to share training resources, etc. It is also a resource for R&D labs to position their technologies and solutions in the avionics domain;
  • Exchanges with tool vendors, component providers and other stakeholders who need to understand their customers’ certification needs, in order to provide new features, dedicated reports, specific documentation packages, etc.;
  • Seminars and Conferences : One key event is the Certification Together International Conference (CTIC), the only Systems, Software and Airborne Electronics Hardware Certification conference in Europe.
