To build reliable avionic applications, we interconnect Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) architectures with Time- Triggered Ethernet (TT-Ethernet). These systems have direct impacts on human lives where the failure is unacceptable. Therefore, verification is an important issue to ensure the safety and the performance of the system. The integration of IMA architectures is a very complex and challenging engineering task. To cope with complexity and to perform verification, a model-based approach, which endows engineering teams with a methodology and an adequate tooling is of a paramount importance. To design IMA architectures interconnected with TT-Ethernet, we have proposed an extension of the AADL language in previous works. In this paper, we present a simulation-based verification of our extension and show how it can be simulated using a discrete event simulation environment called DEVS Suite. The main advantage of this technique is to perform cycle-accurate simulation of the complex avionics systems, which cannot be undertaken by model checking techniques.
