CRYSTAL - CRITICAL SYSTEM ENGINEERING ACCELERATION
The ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking project CRYSTAL (CRitical sYSTem engineering AcceLeration) takes up the challenge to establish and push forward an Interoperability Specification (IOS) and a Reference Technology Platform (RTP) as a European standard for safety-critical systems.
This standard will allow loosely coupled tools to share and interlink their data based on standardized and open Web technologies that enables common interoperability among various life cycle domains. This reduces the complexity of the entire integration process significantly. Compared to many other research projects, CRYSTAL is strongly industry-oriented and will provide ready-to-use integrated tool chains having a mature technology-readiness-level (up to TRL 7).
In order to reach this goal, CRYSTAL is driven by real-world industrial use cases from the automotive, aerospace, rail and health sector and builds on the results of successful predecessor projects like CEASAR, SAFE, iFEST, MBAT on European and national level.
Creating and establishing a new standard on a large scale in an already consolidated market cannot be achieved by individual organizations. With a budget of more than 82 million Euro and 71 partners from 10 different European countries, CRYSTAL has the critical mass to accomplish this endeavor. The project consortium is made up of participants from all relevant stakeholders, including OEMs, suppliers, tool vendors and academia.
