DO-200A Training

DO-200A training provides you the principals, methods, and requirements for avionics databases.  We will discuss the differences and similarities of DO-200A and DO-178 databases and the techniques are used during the development of each. You also will become familiar with the ecosystem modification of DO-200A avionics data, from the conceptual stage all the way to the end-user.

DO-200A, aka the Standards for Processing Aeronautical Data, is a foundation of the present aviation systems. DO-178 and DO-278 serve as a mindshare, while DO-200A operates as the workhorse based on which all the modern aircraft defined. The reason is because DO-200A oversees the tools via which data required for secure airplane functions are gathered, efficient, used, and sustained.

DO-200A training teaches you the standards for the following aeronautical aspects:

  • The mandatory guidelines for analyzing the aeronautical data
  • The data applied to navigate, plan flight, provide terrain awareness, simulate flights, and etc.
  • Developing, modification, and support aeronautical data requirements
  • Deliver data quality

Although DO-200A is a descendant of DO-178, it not a copy of DO-178.  In fact, DO-200A demonstrates a completely different type of principle, in which the data quality is maintained, ensured, and provided across the data processing sequence.  DO-200A training course will clarify such differences and elaborates what are the differences between quality “data” certification DO-200A and avionics software DO-178.

DO-200B updates with Letters of Approval (LOA), processes, tools, and best practices.

RTCA/DO-200B updates include:
  • Revisions to the standard reflecting integrity provisions and lessons learned from
    previous LOA activities,
  • Expansion from a navigation data-centric focus to include all types of aeronautical
    data (e.g., navigation, terrain, obstacle, airport mapping, and other purposes),
  • Revisions to improve linkages with current industry and regulatory activities (e.g.,
  • Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) / Next Generation Air Transportation
  • System (NextGen), Performance Based Navigation (PBN), System Wide Information
    Management (SWIM), Aeronautical Data Quality (ADQ), etc.) and other updates,
  • Improved characterization of data quality requirements (DQRs),
    Adapted RTCA/DO-330, Software Tools Qualification Considerations, to provide
    better structure and consistency for database production tool qualification,
  • Improved content and guidance on validation and verification activities,
  • New requirements and guidance on security for aeronautical data processing,
    Improved guidance on documentation and evidence of compliance,
