LynuxWorks, based in San Jose, Calif., said its LynxOS-178 Version 2.2.2 real-time operating system (RTOS) has been certified for use by Rockwell Collins for use in its Pro Line Fusion integrated  avionics system.

Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion was granted certification this year from Transport Canada (TC) on the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck, marking the first certification of Pro Line Fusion on a  customer aircraft. The system features 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.

“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,” said 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.”

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.
