The Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Consortium Steering Committee passed a motion to approve CERTON as a Verification Authority.

CERTON Safety-Critical Engineering
As an authorized FACE™ Verification Authority, we will apply our demonstrated expertise toward the application of these forward thinking software technical standards to bring a new level of quality, safety, and reusability to the future of avionics.

CERTON, a proven industry leader in safety-critical systems, software, and electronic hardware engineering, is proud to officially announce being approved by the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Consortium as an authorized Verification Authority (VA).

The FACE Consortium, an Open Group Managed Consortium, has concentrated its efforts toward addressing avionics software development and deployment. The intention of the FACE Technical Standard is to reduce costs and streamline delivery of military avionics systems. This is done by codifying a modular architecture, standard interfaces, data models, and conformance criteria into a common operating environment and reusable software components. This provides a means to share capabilities that will exist across platforms, military services, and avionics vendors. The VA is responsible for conducting the For-the-Record conformance verification test using approved test tools and also for assessing the Verification Evidence provided by the Software (SW) Supplier.

CERTON has demonstrated expertise on the FACE Technical Standards and being named an approved FACE™ Verification Authority marks a significant accomplishment for CERTON. This affirmation positions CERTON as part of an elite group of only four authorized suppliers for safety-critical military avionics software verification conformance during a time when Rockwell Collins, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, ARMY, AIR FORCE, NAVAIR, and other organizations are embracing FACE™ for avionics upgrades.
