Abstract: Airworthiness certification is essential for airborne software.The 178C standard is an important safety certification standard for airworthiness.Order 8110.49 guideline sets out the method of airworthiness certification,but there is no research on the 178C target compliance evidence of the software planning phase involved in the review.Based on the objectives of the software planning phase and the feature description of the DO-178C standard,three models were proposed:standard evidence model,project-artifact model and project-related evidence model.And evidence information checklist isgenerated by converting the project-related evidence model to the project-related evidence data modelto determine the source of the evidence information.The review method for establishing the evidence model provides gui-dance for the collection of evidence for the review of the software planning phase,reducing the reliance on the auditor’sreview process and improving the efficiency of the review.And the availability and validity of the proposed evidence model were llustrated by an Airborne-Flight-Display software.

Key words: irborne software, Airworthiness review, Evidence model, DO-178C, Order8110.49
