Airborne Systems

Your partner of choice for designing state-of-the-art DO-160, DO-178, DO-254 and ARINC 661 compliant Airborne Systems and Avionics Software Development for high-end aerospace and defense applications.


Airborne Systems and Avionics Software Development form complex components and systems of any modern aircraft, which enable crucial functionalities of communication, navigation, and flight control, among other Airborne functions.

Airborne Systems

Airborne Systems are becoming more sophisticated leveraging the benefits of advanced embedded computing technologies, airborne sensors and making significant improvements in SWaP. The increasing demand for lightweight Airborne Systems is driving OEMs and system integrators to invent materials and technologies that help reduce the weight of airborne systems. Mistral provides end-to-end Airborne Electronics solutions that address SWaP, performance, and ruggedization needs of the Aerospace and Defense Industry. Mistral keeps abreast of the rapidly evolving Airborne technologies and offers state-of-the-art airborne systems and avionics software development services that meet the stringent requirements of DO-178B/C (for software systems), DO-254 (for Hardware Systems), and ARINC 661 standards.

Mistral is your partner of choice for designing state-of-the-art airborne systems for high-end aerospace and defense applications. With 20+ years of in-depth expertise in video, communications and rugged airborne systems and avionics software development, Mistral’s defense engineering team offers architecting, designing, building and deploying customized airborne systems and sub-systems that integrate multi-vendor COTS, board design, FPGA design and custom avionics software development followed by test, validation and environmental qualification.

Avionics Software Development

A major percentage of the complexity in present day Airborne Electronics are handled at the software-level. Any error in the Avionics Software of safety-critical airborne electronics could be catastrophic. Avionics software development is quite challenging and complex, as it involves a strict plan-driven development process, in compliance with DO-178, DO-254 and ARINC661 standards for Airborne systems.

From single hardware to entire sub-systems, Mistral offers a range of design and development services for building Airborne systems. Mistral’s Avionics Software Development services cater to DO-160, DO-178, DO-254 and ARINC661 standards for airborne systems. Mistral’s design services cater to the exact specifications and requirements of your Airborne Systems. We can either complement your engineering team, or design the complete airborne systems and offer failproof Avionics Software Development services.

Our aerospace and defense team has extensive experience in building complex and integrated airborne systems, sub-systems and Avionics Software Development for a wide array of airborne applications. These include Airborne Electronics and Airborne systems like Beam Steering, Fire Control Systems, Engine Control, Mission Computers, Video Telemetry and other Data Acquisition and monitoring systems.
