GMV Aerospace and Defence (GMV)
GMV is a privately owned technological enterprise group with an international presence.
Founded in 1984, GMV mainly operates in eight sectors for both public and private organizations:
aeronautics, space, defence, health, security, transportation, telecommunications and information
GMV has a long standing reputation as the most competent and reliable European supplier of embedded SW.
In this specific occasion, GMV expertise finds the perfect complement in our collaborator, SciSys, who
provides the necessary expertise on embedded and distributed software engineering. Additionally, GMV is
involved in several studies and projects linked to the definition of model-driven engineering processes
within different industry
domains (e.g., Space, Aeronautics and Defence).
SciSys is a leading supplier of solutions to the Space sector, from bespoke system development to manpower
services and consulting. SciSys was formed in 1980 and became an AIM listed company in 1997. Until 2002
SciSys was called Science Systems.
SciSys provides quality software solutions to the space sector (i.e., monitoring and control, modelling and
simulation, real time embedded systems, mission planning, flight dynamics, etc).
SciSys has a long and successfully history of developing software for space applications and haven been
involved in a large number of studies directly relating to embedded and distributed software engineering.
University of Padova (UPD)
Established in 1222, the Universitą degli studi di Padova is one of the most famous and oldest universities
in Europe. The Computer Science Research group has an acknowledged expertise in Artificial Intelligence,
Theory of Computation and Algorithm, Programming Languages and Real-Time Systems and Software Engineering,
in particular with the software methods, languages and tools for high integrity systems.
Universidad of Padova (UPD) brings the required expertise for the required model-based process assessment.
Thales Alenia France (TASF)
Thales Alenia Space is at the heart of the most high-performance satellite technologies in both civil and
defence sectors, with strong positions in satellite and space and ground segments.
Thales Alenia Space has a strong background knowledge concerning space domain, space process and software
Astrium Satellites (AST)
Astrium Satellites is a world leader in the design and manufacture of satellite systems, with business
activities covering civil and military telecommunications and Earth observations, science and navigation
programmes, together with a complete range of associated ground infrastructure and space equipment.
Astrium Satellites has a strong experience in software space systems in all design and development phases.
It is involved in studies and projects of strongest relevance with respect to the scope of the present
study related to spacecraft system engineering and avionics architecture and on-board software
SoftWcare starts its activity in September, 2001 as an engineering and consulting company specialized in the
industrial development of new techniques and methods to verify and assure the robustness of the software of
critical applications and the quality of its developments.
SoftWcare is expertise on software process assurance and engineering of critical software in space applications,
from both the development and verification points of view. In addition, SoftWcare SL has vast experience in process
model definition and assessment.
