Abstract:

Real-Time Executive for Military Systems RTEMS, is a state-of-the- art, object-oriented, real-time executive which provides a high performance environment for distributed embedded applications. This environment supports any mixture of homogeneous and heterogeneous, tightly-and-loosely-coupled processors. The RTEMS environment is based upon proposed standards for a real- time distributed tasking model. Although Ada was designed to provide a common language for large scale and real-time systems, it is generally acknowledged that Ada does not provide the complete set of capabilities required by many real-time military applications. The design philosophy driving the development of RTEMS is to provide a reusable component which reduces the size and complexity of software development efforts. This in turn promotes the development of cost effective, easily maintainable real-time weapon systems.
