SAN JOSE, Calif., 28 Nov. 2012. Rockwell Collins engineers incorporated the LynxOS-178 version 2.2.2 real-time operating system (RTOS) from LynuxWorks Inc. in the company’s Collins’ Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics system, which Transport Canada (TC) has certified on the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck.

“The latest certification of LynxOS-178 by Transport Canada in the Rockwell Collins Pro Line avionics system is another major milestone for LynuxWorks in the avionics market,” says Robert Day, marketing vice president for LynuxWorks. “This further demonstrates that a standards-based approach for software reuse in airborne systems is viable and can significantly reduce the time and cost of achieving certification.”

Bombardier’s Global 5000 and Global 6000 business jets feature the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck with Pro Line Fusion; Learjet 85 aircraft will also sport Bombardier’s flight deck and Rockwell Collins’ avionics.

Bombardier Aerospace and Rockwell Collins were the first to feature synthetic vision on a head-up display, which leverages LynxOS as part of the Pro Line Fusion avionics system on the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck, reveals a spokesperson.

FAA granted Advisory Circular AC 20-148 approval for LynuxWorks reusable software components (RSC) authorized for the LynxOS-178 product used in the Rockwell Collins Adaptive Flight Display Runtime, Common Computing Module Runtime, Data Concentration Module Runtime and Synthetic Vision Module Runtime for Pro Line Fusion.
