PRESAGIS selected to provide software tools and services to


ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 09 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PRESAGIS, a technology innovator and leading provider of graphical user interface development tools and software, is pleased to announce that its products have been chosen to deliver human- machine (HMI) development capabilities at Boeing.

Initiated in 2019, the multi-year agreement provides Boeing with PRESAGIS’ range of innovative and intuitive software tools and support for its graphical user interface development needs through the following products:

  • The VAPS XT suite of tools for developing integrated graphics displays. Supporting both standard design techniques and the ARINC 661 standard, the tools allow development of ARINC 661 widgets and binary definition files. The suite includes the graphics server source code, used to deploy complete ARINC 661 compliant Cockpit Display Systems (CDS).
  • UA Accelerator and UA Emulator. The UA Accelerator tool for developing ARINC 661 user applications and the UA Emulator for debugging and verifying ARINC 661 systems were also selected, providing a complete development environment for ARINC 661 systems.
  • DO-178C approval. Certification kits including DAL A evidence for each of these products to reduce development risk and time to market.

Using these software tools enables engineers to design, prototype, verify and deploy systems that can be certified to the highest levels.

“We are pleased to be able to support Boeing’s graphical user interface development projects by providing them with our comprehensive set of software tools and capabilities,” said Paul Jennings, Embedded Graphics Manager at PRESAGIS. “PRESAGIS customers have used our HMI graphical modeling and development tools to successfully build and deploy software for over three decades,” he added.

PRESAGIS Graphical Development Tools is an open and extensible COTS Graphical HMI modeling and development suite. These tools provide solutions for creating real-time applications supporting Standard and ARINC 661 certifiable and non-certifiable safety critical environments. VAPS XT is an easy-to-use yet powerful comprehensive software tool for rapid development of graphical HMI screens interactive for avionics and other applications. UA Accelerator and UA Emulator complement VAPS XT when designing an ARINC 661 system, linking graphical layout development with UA system model development, code generating ARINC 661 interface code and taking supports a complete verification and debugging environment for the ARINC 661 protocol. This comprehensive set of software tools allows a user to capture an HMI design, automatically generate source code to implement that design, deploy the design to one or more target platforms and ultimately achieve DO-178C certification.


PRESAGIS is a global leader providing commercial software of modeling, simulation and user interface development tools to the Aerospace, Defense & Security and Critical Infrastructure markets. PRESAGIS is at the forefront of avionics software design for certifiable cockpit displays. PRESAGIS also combines an open simulation development framework with expert professional services to help customers streamline development workflows, reduce project risk, and deliver game-quality, immersive simulations. The company serves hundreds of customers worldwide, including many of the world’s most respected organizations such as Boeing, Airbus, Collins Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems, Leonardo, Thales and CAE, among others.
