LynuxWorks LynxOS-178 Flies High in Super Mid-Size Business Jet Market

LynuxWorks LynxOS-178 Flies High in Super Mid-Size Business Jet Market 
Rockwell Collins' Pro Line Fusion Integrated Avionics System Runs on
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 --   AFCEA West -
LynuxWorks, Inc., a world leader in the embedded software market,
announced LynxOS-178 is flying high. The recent announcement by
Rockwell Collins that its Pro Line Fusion(R) integrated avionics
system that uses LynxOS-178 is now in service on the Gulfstream
G280(TM), marks the system's debut in the super mid-size business jet
market segment. 
"This deployment is a major step in the continued widespread use of
LynxOS-178 in avionics systems," stated Robert Day, Marketing VP for
LynuxWorks. "New market segments, such as the business jet market,
further expand the reach of standards-based software and benefit from
the software's ability to reduce the time and cost of platform
development and its subsequent certification." 
Earlier this year, LynuxWorks received Advisory Circular AC 20-148
approval from the FAA for 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.  
About Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion
 Pro Line Fusion offers
unmatched breadth and capabilities that span from turboprops to air
transport and military aircraft. The system integrates and displays
essential flight information through empowering graphically rich
interfaces, including high-integrity head-up guidance featuring
synthetic and enhanced vision and the industry's largest format LCD
primary flight displays (15 inch). These state-of-the-art interfaces
make flying more intuitive and greatly enhance pilot situational
awareness during all phases of flight. 
Pro Line Fusion is the only avionics system scalable to meet the
mission needs of the full range of business and regional air
transport aircraft. To date, Pro Line Fusion has been selected for 15
new aircraft platforms, including one military application. 
Standards-Based Approach for Reuse
 LynxOS-178 addresses system
developers' need to meet FAA certification by providing a time, space
and resource partition
ed commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) operating
system that fully satisfies the objectives of the DO-178B, level A
and the ARINC 653 standard as well as full conformance with the IEEE
POSIX Standard. Normally, when a systems integrator or developer
wants to integrate components of any other RTOS, or any previously
certified DO-178B software in multiple hardware environments, each
new hardware/software configuration or system must be recertified.
Using LynxOS-178 and its RSC approval allows avionics integrators and
developers to take full advantage of the existing certification of
the LynxOS-178 components for new systems and platforms. The RSC
acceptance letter from the FAA for LynxOS-178 can be used to support
virtually any FAA Technical Standard Order. 
About LynxOS-178 RTOS
 LynxOS-178 is a COTS RTOS that fully satisfies
the objectives of the DO-178B level A specification and meets
requirements for Integrated Modular Avionics developers. LynxOS-178
delivers the security and real-time responsiveness needed for
safety-critical systems and provides a low-risk path to DO-178B
certification for developers to meet the technical requirements in
the production of software for airborne systems. In addition,
LynxOS-178 provides full POSIX conformance, enabling developers to
take advantage of the time-to-market and investment-protection
benefits of open standards-based development. The powerful formula of
DO-178B certification and POSIX conformance allows developers to meet
the most stringent requirements for real-time safety-critical
applications while at the same time ensure application portability,
software reuse and interoperability between embedded systems.
