Agile testing and critical systems

It is a widely shared impression that the agile community and the critical system community live in completely different worlds. Actually, the critical system people normally develops according to standards like IEC 61508, MIL 882 or ED 109, they emphasizes well defined development processes, they often have contractually specified requirements, and detailed documentation of all activities is very important. This approach is radically different from the usual agile development approach. However, we think there are mutual benefits of bringing the two communities together. For example, agile testing approaches can most likely bring many advantages to critical system testing. These possibilities are currently not well understood and exploited.
