Towards Trustworthy Aerospace Systems using Formal Methods
Building modern aerospace systems is highly demanding. They should be extremely dependable. They must offer service without interruption for a very long time - typically years or decades. Whereas 'five nines' dependability, ie. a 99.999% availability, is satisfactory for most safety-critical systems, for on-board systems it is not. Faults are costly and may severely damage reputations. Dramatic examples such as Ariane 5 and Mars Pathfinder are known.

Rigorous design support and analysis techniques are called for. Bugs must be found as early as possible in the design process while performance and reliability guarantees need to be checked whenever possible. The effect of Fault Diagnosis, Isolation and Recovery (FDIR) measures must be quantifiable.

During the last five years, we have attempted to exploit concurrency theory and computer-aided verification to the engineering of aerospace systems. In this talk, we will present: - a general-purpose modeling formalism based on the AADL SAE standard - its formal semantics - sketch a rich palette of formal analysis and synthesis techniques - application to a satellite design at the European Space Agency.
