Multicore OS First For FACE

Green Hills Software has successfully completed the FACE verification process for the Intel version of its INTEGRITY-178 Time-Variant Unified Multi Processing (tuMP) operating system (OS). CERTON, a Cyient Company and independent FACE Consortium approved Verification Authority, has officially verified conformance with the Technical Standard for Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) edition 2.1.1, reportedly making Green Hills Software the only supplier with a FACE-conformant operating system for Intel architectures.


The FACE Registry’s inclusion of a UoC for the Intel version of INTEGRITY-178 tuMP demonstrates full completion of the FACE conformance activities for this Green Hills Software product. Green Hills Software has now completed the FACE 2.1.1 conformance requirements for its INTEGRITY-178 tuMP operating system for three different multicore architectures, or Units of Conformance (UoC): Armv8, PowerPC/QorIQ and now Intel. In addition, each INTEGRITY-178 tuMP UoC has been verified against both the Safety Base and Security Profiles with each profile including verification for C, C++ and Ada support.
