Industry Solutions

Lynx Software Technologies is a leading technology provider of security solutions based on secure virtualization and real-time operating systems (“RTOS”). Our expertise and resulting products are centered around high performance operating systems and secure virtualization solutions that enable our customers to develop sophisticated real-time embedded systems which are required to be ‘always-on’ and touched everyday by millions of people. Reliability and security are the key features of our products and can be found in a wide array of industries: aerospace and defense, networking, telecom, consumer electronics and industrial automation, and are now helping to secure the Internet of Things.


From in-orbit embedded systems to jumbo jets to vital battlefield networks, designers of mission-critical aerospace and defense systems requiring real-time performance, scalability, and high-availability facilities consistently turn to the LynxOS® RTOS and the LynxOS-178 RTOS for software certification to DO-178B/C.

Rich in system resources and networking services, LynxOS provides an off-the-shelf software platform with hard real-time response backed by powerful distributed computing (CORBA), high reliability, software certification, and long-term support options.

The LynxOS-178 RTOS for software certification, based on the RTCA DO-178B/C standard, assists developers in gaining certification for their mission- and safety-critical systems. Real-time systems programmers get a boost with Lynx Software Technologies’ DO-178B/C RTOS training courses.

LynxOS-178 is the first DO-178B/C and EUROCAE/ED-12B certifiable, POSIX®-compatible RTOS solution.


With the introduction of the LynxSecure Separation Kernel Hypervisor, medical devices can now have the best of both worlds, with hard real-time applications running alongside commercial desktop operating systems on the same industry-standard Intel® processors.

The separation kernel offers both safety and security partitioning for applications. The embedded hypervisor functionality allows “guest” operating systems and their applications to run in their own partitions.


“Five-nines” availability, CompactPCI hot swap support, and hard real-time response—LynxOS delivers on these key requirements and more for today’s carrier-class systems. Scalable kernel configurations, distributed computing capabilities, integrated communications stacks, and fault-management facilities make LynxOS the ideal choice for companies looking for a single operating system for all embedded telecommunications applications—from complex central controllers to simple line/trunk cards.

Lynx Software Technologies enables OEMs to rapidly develop mission-critical communications equipment, with pre-integrated, state-of-the-art, data networking and porting software components—including source code for easy customization.

The Lynx Certifiable Stack (LCS) is a secure TCP/IP protocol stack designed especially for applications where standards certification is required.


As the number of powerful embedded processors in consumer devices continues to rise, the LynxOS real-time operating system provides a highly reliable option for systems designers.

For makers of low-cost consumer electronic devices who wish to integrate the LynxOS real-time operating system into their products, we offer special MSRP-based pricing to reduce royalty fees to a negligible portion of the device’s MSRP.


Designers of industrial and process control systems know from experience that Lynx Software Technologies operating systems provide the security and reliability that their industrial applications require.

From ISO 9001 certification to fault-tolerance, POSIX conformance, secure partitioning and high availability, we’ve got it all. Take advantage of our two decades of experience.
