The Constellation project at NASA calls for designing a crew exploration vehicle (Orion, also called CEV) and cargo launch vehicle (Ares, also called CLV). Both projects will rely on newly designed flight control software. The verification of these C++ flight codes is critical, especially for Orion, since human life will be at stake. There exist some commercial tools for the verification of C++ code. However, none of the commercially available tools does a good job at finding bugs dealing with… CONTINUE READING
