REMOS is a software system that allows a host computer, usually a large time-shared computer, to serve as a background operating system for a smaller satellite dedicated to some real-time activity such as data acquisition or process control. REMOS allows the bulk of the processing associated with an entire real-time activity to be performed as background processing in the host, where a wide variety of services and utilities is available for data processing, storage, display, etc. The system also can, through the satellite computers, be dedicated as needed for many real-time applications. The REMOS software was designed for a high degree of host transferability, so that a minimal investment in the satellite and access to any large time-shared system gives the user a versatile real-time system. REMOS is an open-ended system whose goal is to provide a fundamentally sound frame-work upon which more-complicated, specialized systems can be constructed. Author
