Aircraft are increasingly relying on software for the control of their avionics systems’ behaviour. Hence, research into more effective software engineering technologies is needed to reduce software and development complexities and to support airworthiness certifications. However, there is no detailed documentation on open source avionics software development readily available for research that can act as a benchmark to support the evaluation of proposed engineering approaches. To address this issue, we have developed the specification and design of a landing gear control software (LGCS, see Figure 1) with our own proposed methodology. In this article, we summarize the methodology and give an overview of the LGCS specification and design. We also discuss some of the issues we faced.
