Green Hills flies AVs with EAL6+ certified RTOS
Green Hills Software has introduced an autonomous vehicle (AV) open platform for the development of secure software for autonomous vehicle developers to host their unmanned autonomous systems (UAS) applications, writes Richard Wilson.
The heart of the development system is the firm’s INTEGRITY-178B real-time operating system (RTOS) which meets the software safety requirements of RTCA/DO-178B Level A for safety and total reliability, and the information assurance requirements of the US Government’s EAL6+ Separation Kernel Protection Profile (SKPP) for absolute security.
“Our ISS Autonomous Vehicle Open Platform is the first end-to-end Open Platform in the embedded industry that includes an EAL6+-certified RTOS and a FIPS-validated Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit,” said Dan O’Dowd, CEO of Green Hills Software.
According to the company, the platform is agnostic to the hardware, allowing platform providers to utilize the hardware architecture best suited for their environment.
