Barco selects Wind River for military display and management system used by French Armed Forces

Wind River today announced that Belgium-based Barco, an international leader in high-performance display systems for aerospace applications, has selected VxWorks 653 as the foundation for its CDMS-3000 next-generation Control Display and Management System. By standardizing the CDMS-3000 on Wind River VxWorks 653 with commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) DO-178B certification evidence, Barco reduced time and cost in attaining EASA ETSO-C113 safety certification.  

Barco's CDMS-3000 product family is based on its flexible MOSArt modular open system architecture. It includes the civil CDMS-3739 (ARINC 739), the military-oriented CDMS-3703 (combined ARINC-429 and MIL-STD-1553) and the versatile CDMS-3702, all hosting Barco's unique MOSArt platform. This MOSArt platform enables customers to develop and integrate their own applications on the CDMS-3000 platform.  

"The CDMS-3000 product family is a next-generation offering that provides openness and flexibility to customers, while also offering COTS certification to systems integrators," said Jean-Christophe Monfret, product management director at Barco. "As a foundation for the future, we required an industry-leading, COTS DO-178B-certified real-time operating system (RTOS). Barco chose Wind River VxWorks 653 to power the CDMS-3000, which has already been selected for a variety of civil as well as military transport and surveillance aircraft.  

"Wind River VxWorks 653 is the world's leading ARINC 653-compliant integrated modular avionics (IMA) platform," said Andreas Pabinger, vice president of EMEA, Wind River. "The deployment of Barco's CDMS-3000 is just the latest example of an industry leader in civilian and military aircraft selecting the most robust ARINC 653 RTOS in the market to power its cutting-edge design. Safety certification can be a long, costly process and global avionics systems integrators now routinely rely on VxWorks 653 for its COTS certification evidence to reduce costs and time-to-flight."
