Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Rockwell Collins selected the LynxOS-178 as the real time operating system (RTOS) from LynuxWorks in San Jose, Calif., for the company's new Pro Line Fusion avionics system. As a next generation avionics system, Pro Line Fusion was a strong match for an RTOS such as LynxOS-178, which helped speed the product's development and certification process, LynuxWorks officials say.
Pro Line Fusion is a scalable avionics systems that offers an empowering user interface, extensive situational awareness via synthetic enhanced vision, MultiScan weather radar, head-up and head-down display synergy, and large, high-resolution displays. In addition, Pro Line Fusion offers information management that includes maintenance systems, automated database management, and wireless connectivity.
"Our mission is to make our RTOS the industry's foremost enabler of developer innovation, so it's gratifying to know LynxOS-178 was instrumental in helping Rockwell Collins quickly develop and deliver its next-generation flight displays," said Joe Wlad, director of certification, services and marketing at LynuxWorks.
LynxOS-178 is the only RTOS to be awarded a Reusable Software Component (RSC) by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
