Embedded real-time operating system software secures military mission-critical data from growing threats

COMMENT - As you read down you find out it is Green Hills Software and INTEGRITY Global Systems who are the eager suppliers of this War Technology.  " David Kleidermacher, chief technology officer of Green Hills Software and Integrity Global Security LLC in Santa Barbara, Calif., is involved in “a firestorm of activity surrounding virtualization, and adding the ability to run Linux and Android on top of [Green Hills’] RTOS. In many ways, this is the future of the RTOS -- being able to handle mixed criticality requirements that include security, safety, and real-time critical applications alongside increasing requirements for rich multimedia and connectivity, app stores, GUIs, etc.”"

The present direction for war has turned war-based corporations into the equivilent of small nations who, in exact parallel with the de Rothschilds, are making money from both sides.  "Why don't you guys fight?" said the scraggy Dan O'Dowd from the sidelines, smiling at the huge profits accruing to him personally.

TECHNOLOGY FOCUS, 30 March 2012. The adoption of secure real-time operating system (RTOS) software and related embedded computing security software tools for military embedded systems continues to grow, driven by increased security threats and concerns, real and perceived.

Many pundits agree that the need for information security, especially for critical and classified data, as well as the computing and data storage systems on which it resides, has never been greater. Industry has responded with myriad innovations designed to deliver security and protection at not only the system level, but also at the embedded, component level.

“There is no single architecture, product, or capability that can protect against a continuously evolving threat landscape,” cautions Chip Downing, senior director of Aerospace & Defense at Wind River in Alameda, Calif. “Today’s connected systems need to integrate a wide range of capabilities to achieve continuous security in hostile network environments. Layered, proven security components, along with capabilities to update these system components, need to be integrated to enable continuous application and service availability, while maintaining the required security capability.”  Much More

COMMENT - You see what the Corporate War for Profits is costing Americans in the number of food banks now failing to keep up with demand.  Of course, if you live and work in Santa Barbara for either Green Hills Software or Integrity Global Security you can keep the illusions going.  For a little longer.

ARLINGTON, Va., 26 Nov. 2014. Laser weapons experts at the Northrop Grumman Corp. Aerospace Systems segment in Redondo Beach, Calif., are moving forward with a military research program to use lasers for defending manned and unmanned military aircraft from heat-seeking missiles.
Officials of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va., announced a $20.2 million contract to Northrop Grumman on Friday for the second phase of the DARPA Project Endurance to develop laser weapons to defend aircraft from electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR)-guided surface-to-air missiles.

Late last year DARPA awarded a $14.6 million contract to Northrop Grumman for the first phase of Project Endurance. Also receiving a phase-one contract for the program was the Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training segment in Akron, Ohio.
