Abstract : "Flight control system software is a critical component of the digital flight control computer of light combat aircraft. The problems associated with the testing of flight critical software and the test tools, and techniques used to achieve maintainability, and structural and functional coverage of test cases are presented. Also, the experience gained throughout the cycle of testing-design and implementation, reviews and revisions, test execution and software error detection and modificaton of test cases based on requirements and design changes, and regression testing are enumerated. It presents an object-oriented approach towards testing to make it less tedious, more creative, reviewable and easily miantainable."
