Mannarino Systems & Software Inc. (MANNARINO) provides safety-critical systems, software and programmable hardware engineering services to the aerospace, defense, space, simulation, rail and power generation industries. We are highly specialized in the design, verification and validation of safety-critical systems with particular expertise in the following areas:
• Airborne Software (RTCA/DO-178B/C)
• Real-Time Software
• Systems Engineering (SAE ARP4754A/4761)
• Airborne Electronic Hardware (AEH) (RTCA/ DO-254)
• Aircraft Systems Simulation
• Industrial Gas Turbine Controls Software & Simulation

In September 2016, MANNARINO was authorized as a Design Approval Organization (DAO) for Airborne Software & AEH by the National Aircraft Certification Branch of Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) — a first for a Canadian service-based organization. This authorization allows MANNARINO to exercise its delegated functions in the approval process of Airborne Software and AEH products developed either by MANNARINO or any other organization. As such, the MANNARINO DAO can provide service to any aerospace OEM in support of obtaining TCCA approval for airborne software and AEH products. MANNARINO is the first service company to obtain DAO authorization for these products in Canada.

MANNARINO offers a seminar entitled “Software Aspects of Certification and DO-178B/C” designed for systems & software engineers interested in learning more about RTCA/DO-178B/C.

MANNARINO has led and participated in program audits with the following certification authorities and/or associate delegates:
• Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
• Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA)
• European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)
• Directorate of Technical Airworthiness and Engineering Support (DTAES-5)
• Brazil’s Agencia Nacional de Aviacao Civil (ANAC)

MANNARINO is also very proud of its affiliation with Lockheed Martin Aerospace, where investment agreements were signed both in 2010 and 2015 between the two companies as part of the Canadian Government Industrial Regional Benefits & Industrial Technological Benefits (IRB/ ITB) requirements in exchange for the Canadian Government’s acquisition of military equipment from foreign companies abroad. The signing of these agreements is in itself a testament to the quality of the team and the quality of the services that is MANNARINO.

In April 2017, MANNARINO signed an Investment Framework Investment Framework Agreement under the Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) Policy with Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), which represents the largest investment ever made by Lockheed Martin into a Canadian Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME). This agreement enables MANNARINO to develop and commercialize its own proprietary airborne software products and will complement MANNARINO’s existing airborne engineering and certification services offering. This important and groundbreaking investment by Lockheed Martin into MANNARINO will result in job creation of 20+ engineering R&D positions, as well as new jobs in product commercialization, all at MANNARINO’s offices in Montreal, Quebec. The offset investment behind Lockheed Martin’s framework investment is in direct support of Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) obligations associated with Canada’s purchase and In-Service Support maintenance, and support of 17 CC-130J Super Hercules aircraft, which were delivered to the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2010.
