BAE Systems Gold Tier Supplier Award 2021
TTPControllers accumulate over 200 million flight hours per year in commercial aircraft but are also well suited for emerging eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft) and UAM (urban air mobility) applications.
TTTech Aerospace’s TTPControllers are based on the Time-Triggered Protocol (TTP®), an open standard (SAE AS6003) databus developed for reusable and modular integrated systems. The TTP® silicon and chip IP has been designed to meet aerospace requirements in compliance with DO-254 and DO-178B Level A and was certified within the Airbus A380 project.
TTP® technology ensures highly reliable data communication and supports the development of distributed, hard real-time, safety-critical, and fault-tolerant systems for aerospace and cross-industry applications e.g. in the railway sector and robotics. In the aerospace industry, TTP® is used by the world’s largest aircraft manufacturers and their avionic systems suppliers in commercial and business aircraft.
