The Experimental Aircraft Programme (EAP) is a technology demonstrator project in advance of the next generation of fighter aircraft. An integrated software toolset has been established to support the development and production of software for the advanced avionic systems embedded in this aircraft. This paper presents the work undertaken and the experience gained in developing, using and supporting the EAP software toolset from project initiation to final delivery of the software for flight testing. Many of the issues pertaining to the future requirements of an integrated project support environment and the rigours imposed in delivering relliable and high-quality real-time software for embedded processors are discussed.
