FACE Consortium continues expansion, adds LynuxWorks as member

SAN JOSE, 19 March 2012. LynuxWorks Inc., a provider of embedded software, has joined the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Consortium, an industry-government collaboration managed by The Open Group and intended to provide a common airborne computing environment for multiple branches of the U.S. military.

The FACE Technical Standard creates a common operating environment to support applications across multiple Department of Defense (DOD) avionics systems. It is intended to enhance the U.S. military aviation community’s ability to address issues of limited software reuse, as well as accelerate and enhance warfighter capabilities and enable the rapid and affordable implementation of new technologies.

The FACE Consortium boasts 39 members, including the U.S. Navy Air Combat Electronics Program Office, the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research and Engineering Center, and several defense contractors and avionics suppliers.

“We strongly embrace the FACE initiative and intend to be an active member collaborating on the next generation avionics architecture,” says John Blevins, the director of product marketing at LynuxWorks, which is participating to help ensure the success of the FACE standards in the military and commercial aviation markets.

“LynuxWorks is already delivering technology to the avionics industry such as real-time operating systems (RTOS) and software tools for mission-critical systems that are open, modular and portable, key tenets of the reference architecture defined in the FACE Technical Standard,” says Judy Cerenzia, FACE program director at The Open Group. “The growing interest in the FACE Consortium from market leaders such as LynuxWorks has enabled the consortium to develop and continue to evolve a framework for making military computing operations more robust, interoperable, portable and secure.”
