DDC-I Attends US Army Aviation FACE™ Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) and Delivers Rapid Integration Framework Demo

Demo will feature FACE-aligned CMS I/O converter system utilizing Deos RTOS with SafeMC™ Multicore Technology

 BOOTH #25

Huntsville, AL– September 14, 2018.  DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, today announced that it will attend the US Army FACE Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) on September 18 in Huntsville, Alabama at the Von Braun Center, East Hall 1, 2, and 3.

At the TIM, DDC-I will participate in the Rapid Integration Framework Demo, show casing an alternative FACE-aligned I/O converter system utilizing IOS, PSSS, and TSS running on Deos RTOS with its SafeMC multicore technology.  Deos SafeMC provides a FACE Safety Base Profile that delivers hard real-time response, time and space partitioning, and both ARINC-653 and POSIX interfaces.

In addition to participating in the TIM Rapid Integration Framework Demo, DDC-I will provide a live demonstration of an integrated safety-critical system running high-end graphics utilizing NAI’s Custom-on-Standard-Architecture™ (COSA®), the integrated system will feature Deos running Ensco IData and CoreAVI’s ArgusCore SC OpenGL® graphic drivers. See the demo in the exhibit hall at Booth #25.

The FACE TIM is hosted by US Army Aviation. Attended by over 30 partners from industry and government, the FACE TIM will provide demonstrations and showcase products aligned with the FACE Technical Standard that will help warfighters quickly and affordably benefit from continued software innovations. The venue is open to all visitors who are interested in open standards and open architectures for aviation systems.

“We’re excited to be working with NAI, OAR, Ensco and CoreAVI to offer integrated FACE-aligned solutions that deliver maximum portability,” said Greg Rose, vice president of marketing and product management at DDC-I. “We believe these integrated systems will be very attractive to avionics developers targeting a FACE environment who desire a readily certifiable RTOS solution on a standard platform with advanced graphics capabilities.”

About Deos

Deos is a safety-critical embedded RTOS that was first certified to DO-178 DAL A in 1998. Featuring deterministic real-time response, the time- and space- partitioned RTOS employs patented slack scheduling, memory pools, and cache partitioning to deliver higher CPU utilization than any other certifiable safety-critical COTS RTOS. Deos provides the easiest, lowest cost path of any COTS RTOS to DO-178 Level A certification, the highest level of safety criticality.

DDC-I’s SafeMC™ technology extends DDC-I’s advanced time and space partitioning capabilities to multiple cores, enabling developers of safety-critical systems to achieve best in class multicore performance without compromising safety-critical task response and guaranteed execution times. SafeMC’s safe scheduling, memory pools, and cache partitioning technology help developers manage the execution of tasks and the configuration of multicore hardware in a way that makes it easy to manage high-level and low-level interference patterns, isolate detrimental sources of contention, and alleviate resource bottlenecks. The result is enhanced determinism and increased CPU utilization for safety-critical applications spanning one or more cores.

Development support for Deos includes DDC-I’s Eclipse-based, mixed-language OpenArbor™ IDE, which features C and C++ optimizing compilers, a color-coded source editor, project management support, automated build utilities, and symbolic debugger. Also included is a virtual target hardware development tool, QEMU (Quick EMUlator), that allows developers to develop, debug and test their code on their development host PC in advance of actual target hardware availability.
