On-board software for space applications has often complex functionalities and design. Strong real time and quality requirements have to be fulfilled in order to ensure the on-board hardware performance and investigation. Embedded Software Engineering is focused on the methodical and technological realization of medium and large software projects of Information Systems for space applications as well as for traffic and airborne applications. All phases of a software life cycle are performed from the definition of scientific and technical requirements, over modeling, simulation and coding of software up to the validation and maintenance of the software product. Based on international standards, engineering, management and quality assurance methods are used to guarantee an application-oriented approach of software projects with high quality and efficiency. A software engineering group has been established since 1995 to provide on-board flight software for several space missions (Rosetta, COROT, Venus Express) until their launches in 2004, 2005 and 2006 and a maintenance phase until 2014.
