DO-278A is a Well-known FAA CNS/ATM software development standard and ISTQB is a worldwide software testing standard framework. DO-278A verification is mostly done via a variety of methods including Review, Analysis and a few other techniques that are not actually sufficient in testing so it would be quite reasonable to deploy ISTQB techniques for that purpose. This Paper aims to show that Static Techniques of ISTQB may be deployed successfully for DO-278A verification while there are further areas in which it could also be used.
