Alpha is an operating system for the mission critical integration and operation of large, complex, distributed, real time systems. Such systems are becoming increasingly common in both military e.g., BMC3, combat platform management and industrial factory and plant automation e.g., automobile manufacturing contexts. They differ substantially from the better-known timesharing systems, numerically-oriented supercomputers, and networks of personal workstations. More surprisingly, they also depart significantly from traditional real time systems, which are predominately for low-level periodic sampled data monitoring and control.
