LynuxWorks has announced LynuxWorks' LynxOS -SE real-time operating system (RTOS) has been selected by ITT Exelis for their new line of software-defined radios (SDR) that includes Soldier Radio, Rifleman Radio and SideHat variants for the U.S. and International SDR markets.
SDR must be certified by the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Joint Program Executive Office to be compliant with its standards for Software Communications Architecture (SCA) 2.2.2. and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
ITT Exelis Operating Environment (OE) was certified with no waivers, obtaining the highest degree of compliance.
"This selection for the ITT Exelis software defined radios demonstrates the strength of the security capabilities combined with the high performance of the LynxOS-SE RTOS," stated Robert Day, VP of Marketing for LynuxWorks.
"The partitioning capability in LynxOS-SE makes this an ideal solution to meet the complex security requirements demanded in military-grade software defined radios."
