Ampyx Power, a developer of Airborne Wind Energy technology, has selected the VectorCAST test automation platform to support DO-178C Level A software testing requirements.

Ampyx Power’s airborne wind energy system converts wind at high altitudes (up to 450m) into electricity. Ampyx Power uses a tethered aircraft (PowerPlane) to unwind a winch during flight and thereby propel a generator on the ground. VectorCAST provides a automated software testing solution that supports the capture and reporting of structural code coverage data prescribed by DO-178C and ED-12C up to and including Level A.
