According to the FAA Order 8110.49, there are two distinct types of databases used in airborne systems and equipment: Aeronautical Databases (AD) and Parameter Data Items (PDI). Although the database development processes in the RTCA DO-178C and the RTCA DO-200B have many similarities, the use of the DO-200B is limited to navigation, terrain, obstacle, and airport map databases. This paper provides some scenarios for database verification using the RTCA DO-178C and the RTCA DO-200B standards, including the usage of Tool Qualification, when processes are eliminated, reduced, or automated by the use of software tools without reviewing the output produced by such tools.
