Formally verified optimizing compilation in ACG-based flight control software

Abstract : This work presents an evaluation of the CompCert formally specified and verified optimizing compiler for the development of DO-178 level A flight control software. First, some fundamental characteristics of flight control software are presented and the case study program is described. Then, the use of CompCert is justified: its main point is to allow optimized code generation by relying on the formal proof of correctness and additional compilation information instead of the current un-optimized generation required to produce predictable assembly code patterns. The evaluation of its performance (measured using WCET and code size) is presented and the results are compared to those obtained with the currently used compiler.
