Phoenix, AZ. May 25, 2021. DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, today announced that it has expanded its operations in the southeast region with a new office in Huntsville, Alabama. The new office will focus on the burgeoning military/aerospace sector in the Huntsville area with an emphasis on providing COTS solutions based on dominant interoperability standards such as the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) and MOSA. The office will be headed by Rusty DeShazo, a 30-year veteran in the military/aerospace and commercial embedded systems sectors.
“We are excited to add Rusty to the team, expand and solidify our operations in the Huntsville area,” said Bob Morris, president/CEO at DDC-I. “Huntsville and the surrounding areas are home to a number of major mil/aero installations, and our Deos™ DO-178C RTOS is the preferred platform for developers of advanced avionic subsystems that require a portable, upgradeable COTS solution that delivers best-in-class safety-critical performance, FACE™ 3.0 conformance and rapid safety certifiability.”
Huntsville, Alabama is home to the Redstone Arsenal, which includes the US Army Aviation and Missile Command, US Army DEVCOM AvMC, Missile Defense Agency and NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. Alabama is also home to the Anniston Army Depot, Fort Rucker, and Maxwell-Gunter AFB, with the Pensacola Naval Air Station close by.
Deos is a safety-critical embedded RTOS that employs patented cache partitioning, memory pools, and safe scheduling to deliver higher CPU utilization than any other certifiable safety-critical COTS RTOS on multi-core processors. First certified to DO-178 DAL A in 1998, Deos provides a FACE™ Conformant Safety Base Profile that features hard real-time response, time and space partitioning, and both ARINC-653 and POSIX interfaces.
SafeMC™ technology for Deos extends its advanced capabilities to multiple cores, enabling developers of safety-critical systems to achieve best in class multi-core performance without compromising safety-critical task response and guaranteed execution time. SafeMC employs a bound multiprocessing (BMP) extension of the symmetric multiprocessing architecture (SMP), safe scheduling, and cache partitioning to minimize cross-core contention and interference patterns that affect the performance, safety criticality and certifiability of multi-core systems. These features enable avionics systems developers to address issues that could impact the safety, performance and integrity of a software airborne system executing on Multi-Core Processors (MCP), as specified by the Certification Authorities Software Team (CAST) in its Position Paper CAST-32A for Multi-core Processors.
