You are looking for a master thesis and want to get to know the work of Airbus? Then apply now! We look forward to you supporting us in the Avionics Real-time Software Development department as a Masterand (d/f/m)!

  • Location: Manching

  • Start: As soon as possible

  • Duration: 6 months

Airbus Defence and Space is developing embedded real-time software for military aircraft. The domain is therefore set to safety or mission critical products. The development shall fulfil considerations of certification aspects as per RTCA DO-178C and its supplements. Furthermore, the product is to be certified according to DO-297, covering Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) Development, DO-326A, covering Airworthiness Security Process Specification and DO-356A, covering Airworthiness Security Methods and Considerations.

Today, virtualization technologies are utilized in several domains as they bring diverse benefits such as the principle of loose coupling. This enables faster deployment and less integration effort but also the important advantage of controlled resource allocation and management.

However, today’s avionics software is mainly designed in a monolithic way. This does not allow the fine-grained adaption of software according to volatile operational requirements. Therefore, it is required to segment the software into services.
