The ETH-RTOS project is one of the most ambitious and challenging I+D project ever developed in this company. The objective is to build our own certifiable Real-Time Operating System (RTOS), with ARINC-653 certification compatibility for safety critical environments in embedded systems. The system will imply a rupture with current commercial solutions, since it is based on technologies to be converted into reference standards in the sector, such as the ARM architecture and the (AS-6802) Time-Triggered Ethernet deterministic protocol.

The project is co-financed by MINETUR (Ministerio de Industria, Energía y Turismo) inside AEESD (the National program for I+D+i) 2015-2018. ETH-RTOS is expected to be completed at the end of 2017 and it will be an ideal complement to Orbital’s Hardware Platform.
