LDRA & ENSCO, Inc. Partnership

ENSCO successfully utilises the LDRA tool suite on many programs. ENSCO provides our clients with turn key unit test solutions utilising LDRA Testbed and TBrun, along with a number of LDRA’s assembly coverage tools, to verify flight critical software to DO-178B Levels A and B and SEAL Level 1. Examples of the types of applications verified using the LDRA tool suite include the Trent 900 FADEC Operating System, the Joint Strike Fighter Multi Function Display Unit and Actuator systems, and a deicing system.

In order to provide the high quality work product, performance, and responsiveness to our clients, ENSCO has developed detailed work processes, work instructions and training material. Effective and efficient processes are the key to ENSCO’s ability to be responsive, produce work with the highest quality, and meet tight program schedules.

In addition to providing unit test solutions, ENSCO provides consulting services for the configuration, integration, and qualification of the LDRA tool suite. ENSCO has developed a solid relationship with LDRA, resulting in ENSCO providing an on-shore LDRA support option for US based companies.
