To earn the trust of our customers, partners, and stakeholders in the creation of innovative software platforms that cost-, risk- and time-reduce the development and deployment of safe, secure, connectivity mission critical systems for use in manned and autonomous military, aerospace, and federal systems.
For over 30 years, Lynx Software Technologies (Lynx) has crafted and adapted platform architectures for builders of safety- and/or security-critical systems. Lynx embraced open standards from the beginning, with its original real-time operating system (RTOS), LynxOS®, featuring a UNIX®-like user model and standard POSIX® interfaces to embedded developers. LynxOS-178® is developed and certified to the distinguished FAA DO-178C DAL A safety standard and received the first and only FAA Reusable Software Component certificate for an RTOS. LynxOS-178 supports ARINC and FACE API standards.
LYNX MOSA.ic™ combines Lynx technology, 3rd party operating systems and application-specific system integrations to support mixed criticality environments. By harnessing the fine grained CPU virtualization on the newest Arm, PowerPC and Intel processors, customers can rapidly create, certify and deploy safe, secure, and reliable systems. During 2021, Lynx added Cloud- and Device-based management capabilities to support our customers build "systems of systems". LynxElement, announced in 2022, is the industry's first Unikernel to be based on a safety certified RTOS.
Lynx is the leader in enabling Mission Critical Edge platforms, combining deterministic real-time performance, security and hardware optimizations of traditional embedded software with the DevSecOps advantages enjoyed by IT Infrastructure.
Lynx is wholly owned by OceanSound Partners, a New York-based private equity firm that invests in technology and technology-enabled services companies serving government and enterprise end-markets. With about $1B invested, over five thousand employees work for its portfolio companies.
CHOOSING A VENDOR
Many projects have gaps, and it is far too common for vendors to either unwittingly or disingenuously sell standard products that do not satisfy the customer's real project goals—the larger the project, the more gaps exist (which often require collaborative efforts to solve, including partners). If vendors do not diligently study the needs of their customers and/or fail to provide precise and honest guidance, then customers can easily, unknowingly inherit a daunting amount of liability via a simple off the shelf license contract.
