Green Hills Software announced the selection of the INTEGRITY®-178 tuMP™ real-time operating system (RTOS) by Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RI&S). This is for their offering of the Military Global Positioning System User Equipment (MGUE) Increment (Inc) 2 Miniature Serial Interface (MSI) with Next-Generation Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC).

INTEGRITY-178 tuMP will be used in both MSI card for aviation and maritime systems and another for ground-based systems solutions. It is running on the Arm® processor-based ASIC. Based on its use in previous programs INTEGRITY-178 tuMP RTOS has been selected. The Military GPS User Equipment is the GPS receiver for the modernized GPS Enterprise. It can receive military code (M-Code) from newer satellites. The MGUE Inc 2 MSI program is developing a smaller M-Code ASIC and receiver card. The Government Accountability Office had estimated that approximately 700 different types of weapon systems. And they will ultimately require M-Code cards and M-Code-capable receivers, including ships, aircraft, ground vehicles, munitions, and handheld devices.

Dan O’Dowd, founder and CEO of Green Hills Software said that the Green Hills Software has a long history of working with RI&S on GPS & navigation systems. Now, they are pleased to be a part of their MSI with Next Generation ASIC solution. Airborne GPS solutions require both safety and security, and the INTEGRITY-178 RTOS has an unrivaled pedigree in the combination of certified high-robustness security with certified DO-178C safety assurance.

This is uniquely designed to meet both DO-178C DAL A airborne safety requirements and the NSA-defined Separation Kernel Protection Profile. It also is the only commercial operating system, that is ever certified to the SKPP. INTEGRITY-178 tuMP provides a complete set of APIs, beyond the separation kernel. It is the first commercial RTOS approved and also the only RTOS to be part of a multicore certification to DO-178C and CAST-32A multicore objectives. It directly supports a Modular Open Systems Approach.
