Birdstep is committed to making RDM Embedded the database of choice for the aerospace and defense industry
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 20, 2009
Birdstep Technology, Inc. (OSE: BIRD) which offers state‐of‐the‐art embedded database technologies, today announced that it has received a contract from The Boeing Company to upgrade its Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) avionics system with Birdstep's to RDM Embedded version 8.1. The contract also provides for three years maintenance support of the system.
The AWACS aircraft employs complex real‐time avionic systems to meet the operational objectives of the AWACS customer. All system components must function correctly to ensure that the operational objectives of the aircraft are not compromised. RDM Embedded plays an important role in the initiation and monitoring of system controls.
The AWACS system is built on Wind River's VxWorks operating systems, and the RDM Embedded 8.1 supports the latest version of VxWorks 6.6, and v8.1 supports dual compilers built around the VxWorks operating system and adds additional support for x86 targets.
Birdstep's RDM Embedded solution is a feature‐rich database, ideal for embedding into critical applications. RDM Embedded provides exceptional performance and reliability in a small footprint. The combination of features, performance, and size has made RDM Embedded popular for a variety of applications.
"Birdstep is committed to making RDM Embedded the database of choice for the aerospace and defense industry," said Steinar Sande, Birdstep Technology, Inc. CEO. "We are driven to provide companies like Boeing with a fast, scalable and predictable database for their critical applications and support their strategy to improve existing product capabilities as well as delivering new solutions."
