The RTEMS real-time operating system has been established in industry and especially spaceflight for decades. With this year’s introduction of the RTEMS Qualification Data Package, embedded brains is now taking a further step towards safety-critical space projects. This makes RTEMS the first real-time operating system that is suitable for multicore operation, open source and safety qualified at the same time.
The Qualification Data Package contains a detailed functional specification with associated validation tests. These are executed on the customer’s hardware, the test results are directly evaluated and recorded in a document. The result is a high level of security, with the certainty that the operating system will function properly. The test report also contains performance data that can be used to estimate the expected runtime characteristics of the application.
