High Assurance SPIRAL (HA-SPIRAL) is a tool that synthesizes a faithful and high performance implementation from the mathematical specification of a given controller or monitor. At the heart of HA-SPIRAL is a mathematical identity rewrite engine based on a computer algebra system. The rewrite engine refines the mathematical expression provided by a control engineer, through mathematical identities, into an equivalent mathematical expression that can be implemented in code. In this paper, we discuss the use of HA-SPIRAL in generating provably correct and high-performance implementations for different controllers and monitors for autonomous land and air vehicles.
