Abstract : The two most widely used standards covering the development of software in the military and civil avionics industries are DOD-STD-2167A and RTCA DO.178A/EUROCAE ED-12A respectively. This latter document is currently undergoing extensive update by RTCA Special Committee 167 and EUROCAE Working Group 12, with a planned document re-issue date of the end of 1991. This paper compares DOD-STD-2167A with the work currently being undertaken by SC.167/WG.12.
