    88RTEMS is used in many critical systems.  It is important that the RTEMS Project ensure that the RTEMS product is tested as thoroughly as possible.  With this goal in mind, we have set out to expand the RTEMS test suite so that 100% of the RTEMS executive is tested.

    10 There are numerous industry and country specific standards for safety including [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DO-178B FAA DO-178B] for flight software in the United States.  There are similar aviation standards in other countries as well as in domains such as medical devices, trains, medical and military applications.  As a free software project, the RTEMS Project will never have a complete set of certification paperwork available for download.  But we would like to ensure that RTEMS meets the technical requirements that are shared across these safety and quality oriented standards.

    1212We encourage members of the community to help out.  If you are in a domain where a safety or certification standard applies, work with us to understand that standard and guide us to providing a polished RTEMS product that helps meets that criteria.   Providing funding to augment tests, test procedures or documentation that would aid you in using RTEMS in your domain.  Once the artifact is merged into the project, it becomes a community asset that will be easier to maintain.  Plus the increased level of testing ensures that submissions to RTEMS do not negatively impact you.
