By Tish Drake | September 8, 2008

Rockwell Collins will use LynuxWorks’ LynxOS-178 real-time operating system on its Pro Line Fusion avionics system, the companies announced Monday. "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. LynuxWorks said its RTOS offers the interoperability benefits of POSIX with support for the ARINC 653 APplication EXecutive (APEX) and was awarded Reusable Software Component by FAA. Pro Line Fusion will make its debut on the Bombardier Global family of aircraft. For related news
