Abstract: This article introduces the MADES Project. MADES is developing new model-driven technologies to improve current practices in the development of embedded systems for the avionics and surveillance embedded systems industries, in particular taking advantage of MARTE, the OMG UML profile dedicated to Modeling and Analysis of Real time and Embedded Systems. The project is applying a holistic approach in building new tools and technologies that support design, validation, simulation, and code generation, while providing better support for component reuse. The tools and technologies developed within MADES are driven by requirements from industrial users in the Avionics and Defense domains and will undergo extensive validation through use in the development of new applications for avionics and radar surveillance.

Keywords: Advanced Model Driven Architecture, Embedded Systems Design, MARTE
