Avionic systems have been migrating from the legacy federated architecture towards an integrated modular architecture (IMA). The IMA architecture replaces the equipment principle by a set of interoperable components (hardware and software). The interoperability between the integrated components requires a detailed specification and description of their interfaces, which, in the avionic domain, is usually written in Interface Control Documents (ICD). However, ICD creation and usage during the

In fact, the two main problems with the usage of ICDs are the lack of a commonly accepted language to define and use them on the one hand, and the lack of tool support in their production and consumption. In this paper, we present our approach and methodology to overcome these limitations.
