Abstract: The ARINC 653 standard has taken a leading role within the aeronautical industry in the development of safety-critical systems based upon the Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) concept. The related cost savings in reduced integration, verification and validation effort has raised interest in the European space industry for developing a spacecraft IMA approach and for the definition of an ARINC 653-for-space software framework. As part of this process, it is necessary to establish an effective way to test and develop space applications without having access to the final IMA target platform. This paper describes the design and the architecture of a multi-platform and modular ARINC 653 simulator that emulates an execution environment for ARINC 653 space applications.
