While working with state-of-the-art technologies, tools and development methodologies Bertrandt Technology´s (formerly Philotech) long standing experience and background in development of safety critical software components holds us to the highest standards when it comes to design, implementation and testing activities.

Processes and standards are the focus of our efforts to develop software efficiently, but always in a reliable and standardized way.


  • Generic: ISO 9001, EN 9100, IEC 61508, MISRA-C,

  • Automotive: ISO 26262

  • Aerospace: ARP 4754A, DO-178B/C, , ABD0100, ABD0200

  • Defense: V-Modell, MIL-Stds, STANAG, ASD

  • Rail: EN50128

  • Maturity Models: CMMI, SPICE , ASPICE

Thanks to our access to global multilingual experts and a balanced mix of onshore and offshore engineering resources, we deliver the best possible level of cost efficiency while meeting customer confidentiality requirements.

Software Development

With a broad technology background in the aerospace industry ranging from various SW system solutions for aircrafts to avionics-related operations management and maintenance support, we capture the diversity of functional and non-functional requirements and master the high level of complexity while applying technical concepts and standardized software architectures.

We at Bertrandt Technology (formerly Philotech) believe that good software must be designed and implemented with some key values in mind. These values have to be taken into account from the beginning of the design phase until the final line of code. From our perspective these values are: 

  • High Quality 

  • Reliability 

  • Reusability

  • Portability

Topics such as Cross platform SW development, Coding Standards and Test Driven Development with a continuous integration backend and the utilisation of embedded toolchains in agile software team setups are not just some keywords for us, we are living these values and strategies in day to day projects.

Bertrandt Technology (formerly Philotech) has gained experience in various development platforms ranging from bare microcontrollers and specialized DSPs to multi-core-embedded controller running full-scale operation systems like Linux or VxWorks which in turn host reference platforms like IMA / ARINC 653 or AUTOSAR.

Up and coming technologies, such as container technology and virtual machine environment on single and multi-core platforms, are already part of Philotech projects/work/toolset.

Our competence in simulation, real-time embedded systems, visualisation, graphics and human machine interfaces (HMI) has been continuously evolved over more than a decade, including high performance visualization clusters software for simulations purposes, multiplatform desktop applications, web technologies for control interface design and mobile platforms with native interface development (Android and iOS).

For more than 10 Years Philotech has also applied these services and experiences very successfully into the automotive sector. We have become a valuable 1st Tier partner to major OEM’s with full system and software responsibility for end delivery in the fields of: 

  • Electromobility / Power management

  • Driver Assistance Systems

  • Autonomous Systems

  • Connectivity

Bertrandt Technology´s  (formerly Philotech)strategy and goal for our own development as a company is to use and expand the acquired technological background, experience and advanced know-how in these areas and to apply them to the aerospace industry. Therefore, the "Competence Center for Autonomous Systems" has been established in Taufkirchen.

Investment & Training in Future Technologies  

In order to keep up with the state of the art and the advances in these highly agile research and development fields, Bertrandt Technology (formerly Philotech) has established a continuous training program with certified degrees (duration 6-9 months) from online universities to train specific skills, and conducts its own thematic research with educational institutions and universities in Europe.

Our engineers have the possibility to participate in ongoing training programs for advanced and future engineering topics, such as 

  • Machine Learning, Deep Learning (DL)

  • Computer Vision (CV)

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) 

  • Autonomous and Assistance Systems

We understand that the use of synergies between different scientific fields and engineering domains combined with the resourcefulness of our engineers is the key to new solutions, new ideas and our future as a technology company.
