Abstract : The Avionics Integrity Program (AVIP) is an Aeronautical Systems Division initiative to develop an orderly procedure to assure that we acquire reliable, high quality, and supportable avionics systems. A draft military standard has been prepared and has been distributed for review and comment. The draft standard outlines an orderly process using existing tools in order to assure integrity. The orderly technical process combined with an appropriate contract strategy using incentives is expected to yield the highest probability of success in achieving integrity. This paper introduces the Avionics Integrity Program (AVIP) and answers the questions often asked regarding the program. (Author)
