Lynx speeds FLYHT real-time flight communications system to market

Lynx Software Technologies announced that its LynxOS-178 RTOS provides the platform for a ground breaking real-time flight information reporting system. FLYHT Aerospace Solutions global voice and data communications system uses the Iridium global satellite network to stream data in real time from aircraft in flight. The information available can include live black box data in the event of an emergency.

FLYHT’s technology, called the Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRS) increases safety, improves service and enhances profitability with reliable real-time communications. Services available include SATCOM voice, global flight tracking, aircraft/engine health monitoring as well as real-time black box data streaming capabilities. Data is sent securely to airline operators.

The LynxOS-178 RTOS is the first and only COTS operating system to receive acceptance for reusability from the FAA for DO-178B certification. This means that it is recognized by the FAA as meeting the requirements of RTCA/DO-178B and that may be used on more than one project without having to regenerate certification artefacts. Its RSC documentation set follows the guidance of AC 20-148 and includes a detailed partitioning and interface analysis that focuses on time, space and resource partitioning as well as timing margin analysis so developers can allocate budgets to use of operating system services. This simplifies the integration with multiple applications at various levels of DO-178B criticality.

In addition, LynxOS-178 offers the open standards interoperability benefits of POSIX along with support for the ARINC 653 Application Executive. The core of the LynxOS-178 RTOS is designed to be hardware-agnostic, so no changes are required to move the RSC onto other hardware platforms.
