Automated test case generation from behavioral models like Finite State Machines (FSMs) and Statecharts has long been studied. Environments that enable a test designer to model a real complex software and to obtain test cases to validate such a software are mandatory in an automated test approach. This paper presents an environment, GTSC, which enables test sequences to be obtained from both Statechart-based and FSM-based behavioral models. The environment supports test case generation from

Two case studies involving embedded software developed for two computers of scientific experiments of a satellite under development at National Institute for Space Research (INPE) are presented in order to show the usefulness of the environment.
