Developers working on projects in the defense domain face ever-increasing challenges of delivering implementations for increasingly complex systems, while at the same time maintaining product quality to ensure the stringent quality, security standards and certifications criteria. Development of innovative systems, while increasing product performance, often increases the risk of poor product reliability; requiring developers to deliver accuracy and robustness that meet exacting standards. All these challenges must be met or exceeded with fewer system prototypes, while maintaining enough flexibility to adapt to any last-minute requirement changes.
Mistral’s defense solutions team uses the V-model approach for development that identifies the relationship between the development and testing phases. This approach ensures appropriate quality assurance and testing takes place throughout the project lifecycle. Mistral’s development processes comply with the DO-254 and DO-178 standards. All design and documentation comply with the Mil-Aero standards.
