This paper presents an approach for automated test case generation using a software specification modeled in statecharts. The steps defined in such approach involve: translation of statecharts modeling into an XML-based language; and the PerformCharts tool generates FSMs based on control flow. These FSMs are the inputs for the Condado tool which generates test cases. The idea is to demonstrate that by using a higher-level technique, such as Statecharts, complex software can be represented with clarity and rich details. A case study was on an implementation of a protocol specified for communication between a scientific experiment and the on-board data handling computer of a satellite under development at National Institute for Space Research (INPE)
