Successful Boeing 787 Dreamliner Power-On with TTTech solutions

TTTech, the leading supplier of solutions in the field of time-triggered technologies, has contributed proven solutions for the successful completion of the Power On sequence for the first Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The company's products and services are used for integration of Hamilton Sundstrand's electric and environmental control systems in the 787.

A major milestone for the 787 program, Power On, demonstrates that the installation of systems in the advanced, more-electric aircraft is correct and work as expected. This step has been successfully accomplished using TTTech's design tools, embedded COTS products, and platform integration services based on Time-Triggered Protocol TTP on June 19, 2008.

Power On of electric systems in the 787 includes successful integration of TTP-based distributed control systems in global multi-vendor cooperation. This proves the capabilities of TTP technology and TTTech's products to support complex concurrent engineering and system integration projects in the aerospace domain.

Systems integration is especially important to Hamilton Sundstrand since the company is developing a broad range of subsystems for the Dreamliner. In addition to its component engineering and manufacturing roles, Hamilton Sundstrand manages the integration, and oversees verification testing and certification of the airplane power system.

"TTTech's technology and effective teaming with Hamilton Sundstrand have helped yield an improved subsystems integration for the 787 power system," says James Desrochers, Hamilton Sundstrand Chief Engineer, 787 program.

TTTech provides generic embedded platform components and tools, which facilitate design of deterministic hard real-time systems, support system integration and concurrent engineering in large teams working at different locations. Within the scope of this demanding project with Hamilton Sundstrand, TTTech has taken over some system integrator responsibilities with focus on tool-assisted system resource allocation. This enables faster time-to-market and reduces burden on global development teams, which can now focus on application-specific domain.

"We are pleased to support Hamilton Sundstrand in this key implementation phase," states Kurt Doppelbauer, Director Sales Aerospace at TTTech. "Our involvement extended beyond products. It spanned from platform architecture analysis and integration tasks, integrated software development environment and corresponding processes to verification, validation and certification support."
