Rockwell Collins selected the VxWorks MILS Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) Platform from Wind River for its SecureOne Processor architecture and SecureOne Guard software program for military tactical systems.

According to Wind River, with VxWorks MILS Platform as a technology foundation, SecureOne cross domain technologies ensure that aircraft can securely process, communicate, display and store data at different classification levels, without the need to install physically separate equipment to securely protect classified data. This results in the user having access to unclassified and classified data on the same display.

“Wind River is very proud to be an integral part of Rockwell Collins’ innovative SecureOne cross domain technologies,” said Chip Downing, senior director of aerospace and defense at Wind River. “Companies that are responsible for creating powerful aerospace, defense and other infrastructure systems are demanding ever increasing functionality and safe and secure operation, with very high levels of security and safety assurance. VxWorks MILS Platform meets these stringent demands.”
