LYNX MOSA.ic supports Gray Eagle UAS Software Modernization
San Jose, California, August 26, 2020 – Lynx Software Technologies, an innovator in modern...
General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) has adopted the LYNX MOSA.ic software framework for the Gray Eagle Extended Range (GE-ER) Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS).
LYNX MOSA.ic is aligned with GA-ASI’s objectives to meet software-modernization targets for the GE-ER program that include safety and cost efficiency, as well as introducing new features, increasing system robustness and securing future flexibility.
Develop, certify, and deploy complex, deterministic systems faster by securely and safely integrating open source software with well-tested, certified components. Industry-specific development and integration frameworks combine bare-metal, embedded Linux, 3rd-Party OS, and safety-certified RTOS components on a secure foundation. Minimize certification burdens, cut project costs, and reduce time to market, with LYNX MOSA.ic.
"LYNX MOSA.ic for Industrial is a set of Lynx software packages, 3rd-party technologies, and associated tools which Lynx has proven to operate together in a safe and reliable way. LynxSecure, Lynx’s proven separation kernel is the foundational building block of this product, enabling mixed criticality systems to be configured on top of it."
The following are sets of Lynx software packages, 3rd party technologies, and associated tools which Lynx has proven to reliably work together for rapidly building robust avionics, industrial, and unmanned systems.
With many suppliers focused on the security of these systems, Lynx appears to be one of the few worrying about high reliability of platforms over 10+ year product lifecycles.
We are excited that both NXP and Arm architectures are now supported within the LYNX MOSA.ic framework. It offers an exceptional technology for managing the complexity associated with multicores, reducing the design and certification time for safety critical systems based on NXP Layerscape and QorIQ SoCs.
The inclusion of FreeRTOS as a guest of the LynxSecure separation kernel hypervisor will give developers an easy and low cost path to development and integration of complex systems, with a path to a fully safety-certifiable solution.
LYNX MOSA.ic helps reduce the cost and time investment for customers developing, certifying and deploying innovative platforms.
