BlackBerry supports aerospace and defense market with conformance certification

August 8, 2022 | By Monica Ferguson

BlackBerry announced its QNX Software Development Platform 7.1 has achieved conformance to the latest Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) technical standard as a General Purpose Profile Unit of Conformance (UoC), enabling developers to deploy software solutions based on the BlackBerry QNX platform to deliver defense vehicle capabilities.

Software conformance with the FACE Technical Standard can be used and reused by suppliers and integrators of systems across different global defense programs. The FACE framework is supported by over 90 international government and industry member organizations. By achieving FACE conformance, BlackBerry QNX can help manufacturers and service providers reduce procurement costs and prevent supplier lock-in.

“Aerospace and Defense systems manufacturers need to rapidly deploy their solutions in a wide range of platforms that operate in hostile environments against peer adversaries,” said Grant Courville, vice-president, products and strategy, BlackBerry QNX. “BlackBerry QNX solutions enable embedded developers with an independently certified software foundation that is designed for safety, security, reliability, and standards conformance, allowing developers to focus on delivering competitive defense capabilities.”
