ENSURING SECURITY IN CONNECTED AEROSPACE & DEFENSE SYSTEMS
For more than 35 years, Wind River continues to be the company to trust for securing connected devices in commercial aerospace and defense systems. As these sensitive systems become increasingly networked, this connectivity opens up the potential for increased attack from a wide range of threat vectors.
Supporting standards such as ARINC 653, DO-178, ED-12, and POSIX®, the Wind River portfolio of products and technologies makes it easier and more cost-effective for technology suppliers to meet the stringent requirements of aerospace and defense customers.
VxWorks was chosen by Northrop Grumman as the software platform for the UCAS-D program and by GE Aviation as the foundation for the Common Core System, the backbone of UCAS-D computers, networks, and interfacing electronics.
