"Lynx has an extensive history and proven success in security, especially within industries similar to ours. We look forward to working together to create new, mission critical solutions.”
ARCHITECTURE & OVERVIEW
Lynx also provides software deployed on servers on-premise or in the cloud that manages LYNX MOSA.ic based edge systems. This software communicates with platform software to execute manageability tasks (install, software updates or monitoring guest OS /applications within a VM).
In contrast to traditional RTOS platforms—where hardware control, real-time scheduling, security, multimedia, and application runtime services are integrated into a common stack servicing all applications on all CPU cores—LYNX MOSA.ic allows system architects to subdivide systems into smaller, independent stacks which include only the dependencies required.
Traditional approaches to building virtualized embedded software architectures that are robust and secure have placed much of the burden in a hypervisor and/or OS.
This can create platform dependencies which impact performance, as well as cause a number of architecture challenges due to:
- Shared address space
- Shared CPU privilege
- Common arbitration points
- Global resource pools
- Compounding code branches
- Compounding control flow timing
- Large co-dependent code bases to certify
The more complexity that lies hidden between applications and hardware, the cloudier the path to system comprehensibility and robustness.
Reducing software stack dependencies and minimizing the hidden complexities between independent application modules and hardware yields exponential program value over the complete development lifecycle by:
- Promoting traceable, comprehensible architectures
- Giving evaluators the ability to truly validate security and safety properties
- Reducing time to debug
- Unlocking heterogeneous design options
- Increasing the speed of system integration
LEVERAGES HARDWARE VIRTUALIZATION
LYNX MOSA.ic uniquely leverages virtualization-enabled multi-core processors to simplify software stack complexity and unlock rapid development and integration options. New hardware capabilities present new approaches for platform software to minimize stack complexity, overcome performance thresholds, and provide better application portability properties.
BUILT TO BE MODULAR AND OPEN
LYNX MOSA.ic embodies the integrated business and technical DoD implementation strategy of the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) defined in Title 10 U.S.Code § 2446a.—Requirement for modular open system approach in major defense acquisition programs. It enables system developers to build systems compositionally using open standards, relying heavily on the reuse of well-tested and certified components.
DESIGNED FOR MISSION-CRITICAL SYSTEMS
Supporting rich features while meeting quality standards impose intractable cost and schedule challenges under traditional platform designs, in which all hardware control, real-time scheduling, security, multimedia, and application runtime services are integrated into a common platform. In contrast, LYNX MOSA.ic provides open flexibility on a robust foundation, meeting the rich system functionality needs of systems deployed in high-threat environments.
The following development and integration frameworks combine various bare-metal, embedded Linux, 3rd-Party OS, and safety-certified RTOS components on a secure foundation. These frameworks include the software technologies best-suited to building robust systems for a broad array of end systems specific to each market.
