DARE has upgraded MiG-27 aircraft into a State-of-the-art potent weapon platform by equipping it with advanced digital avionics systems. The system is built around a modular Core Avionics Computer (CAC) developed by DARE. The CAC built on open system principles houses functional modules using contemporary processors and devices. Accurate weapon delivery with free fall bombs and laser guided bombs are key features of this upgrade.
DARE evolved the system specifications and interface control requirements taking into consideration IAF need for operations and maintenance. These led to the software requirements for the CAC. DARE took up the challenge of developing the mission critical software. Over one million lines of code were developed adhering to stringent real time constraints and requisite software engineering requirements. The resultant quality software was independently verified and validated with external agencies.
