As provider of the LDRA tool suite, the JSF software test tool of choice, LDRA has worked closely with prime contractor Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company (LMCO) during the critical System Design and Development (SDD) phase of the project. Most recently, this technology partnership has seen LDRA assisting with the development of a C++ coding standard specifically for the JSF Air Vehicle Systems division.

As part of this close collaboration the LDRA tool suite has been enhanced to incorporate the necessary technical features required in order to implement the software test process of the LMCO Air Vehicle (AV) coding standard. This enhanced version of the LDRA tool suite provides users with an automated process for seamlessly checking the C++ standards required by the JSF project. The key benefits to the programme are that software is developed to a consistent style, is portable to other architectures, free from common errors and easily understandable and maintainable by any team member
