Ike Song: Northrop to Integrate Wind River Software into UH-60V Avionics Mission System - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Black HawkNorthrop Grumman has chosen Wind River to supply an embedded software technology for integration into a Northrop-designed avionics mission equipment package for the U.S. Army‘s UH-60V helicopters.

Wind River will deliver its VxWorks 653 operating system platform to Northrop as part of the Black Hawk cockpit digitization program, Wind River said Wednesday.

Dinyar Dastoor, vice president and general manager of operating system platforms at Wind River, said the technology is designed to comply with the ARINC 653 standard architecture for space and time partitioning to help users prevent a faulty process.

“Our use of VxWorks 653 enables us to align with the Future Airborne Capability Environment Technical Standard, achieve DO-178C certification and consolidate our avionics technology on multicore hardware,” said Ike Song, vice president for situational awareness systems at Northrop’ electronic systems business.

Wind River says its technology has been integrated into many manned and unmanned aircraft platforms for commercial and military customers.
