Wherever Safety & Security matters
As the leading European manufacturer of embedded operating systems, we drive innovations and create values for customers globally. We understand complex market dynamics and anticipate trends that impact our customers' businesses. Our maxim "Safe and Secure by Design" applies to the entire life cycle.
Avionics & Defense
PikeOS can be found in the civil Aviation and Defense industry. It copes with the major current challenges of embedded development. PikeOS allows to reduce weight, space, cabling and energy consumption and satisfies the need to reduce certification cost. Autonomous vehicles, vessels and drones can operate globally without the risk of injury and life of the operators. At the same time, such autonomous or remotely controlled systems are prime potential targets of cyber-attacks. As a consequence, Security becomes an important topic for Avionics. PikeOS is certified according to the DO-178C on the highest level as wells as compliant to concurrent regulatory security frameworks.
Space systems have to be lean, yet highly responsive. Our technology can be used in systems that act autonomously, but can be also manually controlled and require robust partitioning and Security features. We provide means for controlling tasks, processing of mission data, secure communication of subsystems and between spacecraft and ground station with strong focus on failure Safety. Our hypervisor technology provides mechanisms to isolate partitions and still ensures real-time ability, so different levels of criticality may be executed at the same time – from a simple yet highly critical control task to a full ARINC 653 application.
Both, in trains and in the railway signalling infrastructure, there is a trend to use COTS hardware as the computing elements and open network for communications. Usage of the COTS hardware and open network introduces security issues that directly affect the Safety of Railway operations. Due to the high criticality nature of Railway applications like ETCS or ATO there are strict standards that specify the methodology for the development and evaluation of systems for trains and infrastructure. PikeOS is the proven safe and secure embedded solutions for rolling stock and wayside communication and the first EN 50128 SIL-4 certified software solution on multi-core on the market.
In the wake of autonomous driving and connectivity, functional Safety and embedded security are becoming the major aspects in software development. Although compliance with the established ISO-standard is still not mandatory by regulation, it is required by almost any vendor today. Manufacturers and OEM are increasingly using concepts which have been proven in the Aerospace industry. PikeOS is certified according to the strictest safety standards such as ISO 26262 and is one of the first separation kernel-based hypervisor in series production.
Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have dramatically changed the way embedded industrial applications are designed. With batch sizes being reduced to as small as one, flexibility is of utmost importance. And while functional Safety has always been a top priority, embedded Security is becoming equally important given that all machinery is connected and there is a steady flow of data into cloud-based analytics.
In the healthcare industry, intelligent Medical systems and devices do not only increase efficiency in hospital operations, but act as an enabler of entirely new concepts such as remote healthcare. As Medical systems become more mobile and portable, power consumption becomes a key consideration. Given the critical nature of the applications, both Safety and Security are major concerns.
SYSGO has been involved in many certification projects and our senior engineers have excellent experience in designing software architectures that are certifiable according to the highest Safety and Security levels. The same applies when it comes to specification, requirement management, verification, validation and testing.

Securing the Internet of Things
PikeOS - RTOS & Hypervisor
In 2008, SYSGO’s PikeOS has been selected by Airbus as the DO-178B reference platform for the A350 XWB. Today, PikeOS is the world's first SIL-4 certified real-time operating system with multi-core support. Our PikeOS hypervisor (Type 1), running directly on the hardware, is certified according to strictest Safety standards such as IEC 61508, EN 50128 and ISO 26262. In terms of Security, the PikeOS Separation Kernel Version 4.2.3 (build S5577) is currently the only Separation Kernel worldwide that holds a Common Criteria certification (EAL3+) for its separation performance.
In addition, PikeOS offers a fully-certified programming interface and thus enables application development according to the "Safe & Secure by Design" principle.
Industrial Grade Linux
ELinOS is a Linux distribution for embedded systems and available for multiple platforms. It is targeted to developers and comes with a complete development environment and cross-toolchain. An ELinOS system typically consists of a boot image with a very small footprint.
It is configured and generated on a host computer running desktop Linux or Windows.
