Collins Aerospace selects Green Hills software operating system for US Navy

Green Hills Software has announced that its INTEGRITY-178 Time-Variant Unified Multi-Processing (tuMP) RTOS for the Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGA has been selected by Collins Aerospace for the US Navy´s Tactical Combat Training System Increment II (TCTS Inc. II) program, the company said.

Key factors in the selection of INTEGRITY-178 tuMP were its proven Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) architecture, its ability to host Multi-Level Security (MLS) applications such as Cross Domain Solutions (CDS), its ability to host a guest OS and legacy applications in a secure virtualized partition, and its conformance to the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) 3.0 Technical Standard.

Collins Aerospace´s TCTS Inc. II solution enables the rapid adaptation of new missions and threats into training as well as joint and coalition interoperability with fourth- and fifth-generation aircraft platforms. The ability for the Navy and Marine Corps to rapidly advance future technology insertions is due to Collins Aerospace´s open architecture design and use of industry standards including alignment with the FACE Technical Standard.
