Boeing Chooses Wind River For Army Project

Posted by iMark - 2006-03-21

The Boeing Co. has chosen Wind River Systems Inc. as the supplier of embedded software tools needed to build a U.S. Army combat system, the latter company said Friday. Financial details were not disclosed.
As lead systems integrator, Boeing decided to standardize embedded software development in the Army's Future Combat System program on Wind River Workbench. The FCS is expected to become a network of 18 individual combat systems, including manned and unmanned systems.

More than 2,000 developers across the United States are designing the network, Alameda, Calif.-based, Wind River said. The system is expected to allow soldiers to link to sensors, unmanned air platforms, and manned and unmanned ground platforms using advanced communications and technologies.

Wind River Workbench was chosen, in part, because of its support for the heterogeneous platforms that will run various applications in the system. The tools will be used to develop the system's common operating environment, as well as other FCS applications and hardware projects, including battle command software, tactical and strategic communications, and intelligence, reconnaissance, and surveillance sensors.
