Kienitz^ ^Computer Science Division ^Electronics Engineering Division, ITA, CTA, 600 Jose doa Campos, 6*?, ABSTRACT This paper presents the prototyping approach selected to explore and develop the VLS embedded software project in its initial phase, along with some considerations about the use of this technique for the development of real-time, critical software applications in general. Besides the technical usefulness of the prototype, allowing the study of design alternatives, prototyping is shown as an effective way to improve quality in critical software projects. INTRODUCTION Since the 1960's, aerospace activities have been conducted by Brazilian government agencies. More recently, continuing these experiments, a
