General Atomics – AAG HealthMap – was designed to provide needed higher reliability and safety margins, as well as to automatically manage the arrestment of a greater range of aircraft and reduce the fatigue impact load to the aircraft and pilot. Keep on reading

The story behind AAG

The Advanced Arresting Gear (click on the image to enlarge)

General Atomics developed, and installed on the USS Gerald Ford aircraft carrier, AAG HealthMap is a state-of-the art modular integrated Prognostic Health Management (PHM) system.

 

It was designed to provide needed higher reliability and safety margins, as well as to automatically manage the arrestment of a greater range of aircraft and reduce the fatigue impact load to the aircraft and pilot.

 

D2K, an experienced developer of G2™ powered solutions, was awarded a contract to apply their industry standard test-driven design and test methodology to verify and validate the PHM software.

 
Test Driven Design (TDD)
  • Write a test that fails

  • Code until it passes

  • Refactor (re-coding if it breaks)
