Airbus France Astrée: "In 2003, Astrée proved the absence of any runtime errors in the primary flight-control software of an Airbus model. The system’s 132,000 lines of C code were analyzed completely automatically in only 80 minutes on a 2.8GHz 32-bit PC using 300MB of memory (and in only 50 minutes on an AMD Athlon 64 using 580MB of memory). Since then, Airbus France has been using Astrée in the development of safety-critical software for vari­ous plane series, including the A380.", Coq (Interview with Xavier Leroy), CAVEAT, a C-verifier developed by CEA and used by Airbus.
