DDC-I Showcases FACE-Conformant DO-178C Deos RTOS at Air Force FACE and SOSA TIM and Expo

BOOTH # 52

Dayton, OH – September 26, 2022. DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, today announced that it will demonstrate Deos™, a FACE conformant RTOS solution, at the Air Force FACE and SOSA Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) and Expo on September 27, 2022 at the Dayton Convention Center in Dayton, OH.

DDC-I will showcase its FACE-conformant DO-178C Deos real-time operating system and OpenArbor development tools running on an Intel Tiger Lake reference platform in Booth 52. The Deos environment will also be featured in partner demonstrations, including NAI’s MOSA-aligned SWaP-optimized architecture and RTI’s Connext Data Distribution Service. Additional demos from the MOSA and FACE demonstration team will be available in the U.S. Army Program Executive Office (PEO), Aviation MOSA Transformation Office booth. DDC-I will also participate in the WolfSSL security demo as the Operating System Segment (OSS).

The U.S. Air Force – FACE™ and SOSA™ Technical Interchange Meeting and Expo, hosted by the Air Force Lifecycle Management Center (AFLCMC), is an important opportunity to discover new advancements and the progress being made for functionality and interoperability of modular open system environments. The event features DoD leaders and members in the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) and the Sensor Open System Architecture (SOSA) Consortia.

“We look forward to demonstrating our world class, FACE-conformant safety-critical platform to the Air Force community,” said Greg Rose, vice president of marketing and product management at DDC-I. “Modular, reusable COTS systems equipped with Deos provide an ideal platform for rapid development, certification, and deployment of interoperable safety-critical software for a broad range military avionics applications.”

DDC-I’s Deos is a safety-critical time and space partitioned real-time operating system (RTOS). Verified to the guidance of DO-178C/ED-12C Design Assurance Level A (DAL A) for avionics applications, Deos supports ARINC 653 APEX, Rate Monotonic Scheduling (RMS), and was the first RTOS to receive the Future Airborne Capability Environment™ (FACE) Conformance Certificate for the FACE Technical Standard, Edition 3.1.  The certification covers the Safety Extended and Safety Base Profiles for the Operating System Segment (OSS).

SafeMC technology extends Deos’ 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.

DDC-I Demonstrates FACE Conformant RTOS Platform at US Army FACE and SOSA Expo and Technical Interchange Meeting

Demo will feature FACE Technical Standard 3.0 Conformant Deos RTOS with SafeMC Multicore Technology

Booth #33

Phoenix, AZ. September 10, 2021.  DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, today announced that it will demonstrate Deos™, a FACE conformant RTOS solution, at the US Army FACE™ and SOSA™ Expo and Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM), Booth #33, which will be held on September 14, 2021 at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL.

The U.S. Army – FACE and SOSA TIM, hosted by the U.S. Army, is an important opportunity to discover new advancements and the progress being made for functionality and interoperability of modular open system environments. The event features DoD leaders and members in the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) and the Sensor Open System Architecture (SOSA) Consortia. The TIM is open to the public and free to attend. 

At the TIM, DDC-I will participate in the PEO AVN Open Systems Demo, showcasing a FACE-aligned data concentrator unit (DCU) utilizing the I/O Services Segment (IOS), Platform Specific Services Segment (PSSS), and Transport Services Segment (TSS) executing on the Deos RTOS, including its SafeMC™ multicore technology, as the Operating System Segment (OSS). 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 Open Systems Demo, DDC-I will provide a live demonstration of the BALSA architecture running on Deos in a POSIX partition. See the demo in the exhibit hall at Booth #33.

“We’re excited to be working with our partners and the FACE Consortium to offer solutions that deliver maximum portability and safety criticality following the guidance of FACE and the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)” said Greg Rose, vice president of marketing and product management at DDC-I. “Much like the primary goals of FACE and MOSA our safety-critical DO-178C DAL A verified RTOS, Deos, has been designed to enable software reuse and applications portability since its first certification baseline in 1998.”

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 extends Deos’ 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.
