Helitune: Applying an Agile approach to an aerospace concept

Helitune are at the forefront of the aerospace industry, providing on board and portable applications and rotortuner solutions. Many of Helitune’s projects are of a highly confidential nature due to their expertise in vibration monitoring, rotor track and balance systems.

We were approached to support the in-house developers and engineers, with all software strictly adhering to the industry and safety-critical standard of DO-178B.

Through collaboration we successfully introduced a flexible, Agile-influenced approach, delivering the project on time and to budget, within a very formal and rigid industry.

Project outcome

  • Successful integration of an Agile approach. It was a bold move on our part to effectively pair an Agile-influenced approach with aerospace practices and standards.
  • Act as expert resources. Seamlessly extending Helitune’s resource pool through collaboration kept the project on track within budget and timeframe.
  • Adhere to confidentiality terms. Helitune’s project sensitivity meant all information was strictly confidential, with our team adhering to their privacy policy at all times.
  • Complying to aerospace standards. It was essential that all software created complied with the DO-178B industry standard, this was achieved through extensive research and dedication.
