At Wind River® we don't just embrace open standards; we're taking the lead in establishing them. We've shown our commitment to evolving standards by driving the Device Software Development Platform project at the Eclipse Foundation; providing TIPC support for messaging on the backplane between different operating systems; leading the way on Carrier Grade Linux with Open Source Development Labs (OSDL); and participating in standards bodies important to aerospace and defense. Wind River is affiliated with the following organizations:
APEX Working Group of the AEEC
The Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) is an international body of airline representatives that leads the development of technical standards for airborne electronic equipment used in commercial, military, and business aviation. The organization's APEX Working Group is focused on updating ARINC Specification 653, Application Software Standard Interface, for traditional avionics and integrated modular avionics (IMA).
Eclipse is an open platform for tool integration built by an open community of tool providers. Operating under an open source paradigm with a common public license that provides royalty-free source code and worldwide redistribution rights, the Eclipse platform enables tool developers to have ultimate flexibility and control over their software technology.
The Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Consortium is an aviation-focused professional group made up of U.S. industry suppliers, customers, and users. The Consortium is creating a technologically appropriate, open FACE reference architecture, standards, and business model.
RTCA Inc. is a private, not-for-profit corporation that develops consensus-based recommendations regarding communications, navigation, surveillance, and air traffic management (CNS/ATM) system issues. RTCA functions as a Federal Advisory Committee. Its recommendations are used by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as the basis for policy, program, and regulatory decisions, and by the private sector as the basis for development, investment, and other business decisions. RTCA includes about 335 government, industry, and academic organizations from the United States and around the world.
The Open Group
The Open Group is a vendor-neutral and technology-neutral consortium, whose vision of Boundaryless Information Flow will enable access to integrated information, within and among enterprises, based on open standards and global interoperability. The Real-Time and Embedded Systems Forum defines, coordinates, integrates, and prioritizes real-time and embedded systems standards utilizing various existing architectural approaches. The forum also defines test suites and certification programs for products adhering to these standards to enable the proliferation of conformant real-time and embedded systems, including POSIX profiles, Linux for embedded systems, and safety and mission-critical real-time Java.
Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS) International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of unmanned vehicle systems. UVS maintains a public site, UCARE, that offers an extensive collection of regulations and official documents, position and opinion papers, and international conference presentations pertaining to UAV-related airworthiness, certification, and air traffic management.
