The technological advancements in the aerospace domain including infiltration of mobility have urged organizations in the space to develop mission critical software creating a bridge between smart devices and onboard systems. As the beholder of some of the most complex systems, the personnel in the aerospace industry need to tend to the compliance requirements while designing a solution. This is impossible without a clear definition of the product and the required tools that help in coordinating and streamlining product development lifecycle. This is where Pinnacle Aerospace comes in. The company offers complete lifecycle support for DO-178b or DO-254 mission critical software applications. With latest tools and processes, Pinnacle helps aerospace clients to manage their projects and minimize risks. “By taking advantage of technology advancements in mobile hardware and software, we produce new portable applications which greatly improve utility and safety in the aviation industry,” says Mike Morgan, President and CEO, Pinnacle Aerospace.
The company offers services that enable clients to develop as well as execute projects with complete certification support. Pinnacle helps aerospace industries to design a project plan according to their needs and budget providing them the necessary development plans. Along with a foothold in avionics integration and aircraft simulation, Pinnacle helps in organizing existing requirements into a database and evaluates system requirements for testability. In addition, the company’s expertise in flight controls, aircraft maintenance systems, and data link systems further helps companies in shaping their project plan. Using streamlined development processes and latest software development tools, the company then executes the plans.
The safety critical and mission critical embedded applications of the firm help create the required design documents such as Software Requirements Document (SRD) and Software Design Description (SDD). Once the software is developed, Pinnacle offers complete test and documentation services to ensure structural test coverage for a certification ready product. After achieving compliance with required standards, the company helps in automation and execution of the product through customized tools.

The company integrates its services into clients’ work processes to deliver projects on time through various models. While the Pinnacle Managed model handles the entire project and delivers the final product with minimum supervision by the client, the Co-Managed model integrates with management level allowing both the client and Pinnacle to design the product. The Staff Augmentation model empowers the customer to direct the project and offer daily insights to it. The company’s customized model is a near shore service model that can be customized according to the needs of the user.
Pinnacle’s ability to incorporate its latest business management tools and automated processes to eliminate duplication, enhances communication and efficiency adds credence to its stature in the market. Automated processes eliminate chances of error propagation while updated tools help in online virtual design reviews. Further, its transparent program manager gives direct access to data increasing visibility across the program. Users can review their programs by either logging into MyProject or using Pinnacle mobile application, MyMobile. Moreover, the utilization model developed by the company along with its supply chain partners allows it to reduce overhead costs, which in turn lowers costs for its customers.
The company has recently shifted to its new expanded facility in Mexico with separate access controlled labs for long-term growth in the aviation industry. “This move represents an important step in our company’s growth plans,” concludes Morgan.
