Why PikeOS?


Cost-Reduction

PikeOS helps to reduce total cost of ownership:

  • Re-use Legacy Code in a safety critical environment (separated by the PikeOS Hypervisor)
  • Use low-cost and/or convenient open source code (drivers, connectivity, libraries) and Linux or Android in a safety critical environment (separated by the PikeOS Hypervisor)
  • Mixing of GuestOS like ARINC-653 and POSIX® or AUTOSAR and Linux in a certification context
  • Save hardware costs by consolidation of several functions in one hardware, using the PikeOS Hypervisor
  • Save hardware costs by efficiently using modern multicore processors (PikeOS can be certified for multicore)
  • Save certification time, efforts and costs by using commercial-off-the-shelf PikeOS Certification Kits
  • Save certification costs by utilizing a MILS (Multiple Independent Levels of Safety&Security) architecture, where each application is certified to its individual safety/security level only
  • Save licensing and certification costs by using PikeOS both for safety and security
  • Utilize SYSGO services for time to market, efforts and costs optimization (training, consulting, engineering services)
  • Reduce software obsolescence problems by SYSGO’s Long Term Support and Certification Support, supporting long product lifecycles
  • Secure your software investments as SYSGO’s PikeOS supports many processors (ARM, PowerPC, X86) and offers a broad feature set, allowing you to use it in a wide range of applications covering many different requirements

Additionally PikeOS also helps reducing risks:

  • Reduce certification risk with PikeOS as a firm and certifiable basis
  • Reduce development time and success risks using the real-time capabilities, flexible scheduler, robust time and resource separation and reliability of PikeOS
  • Utilize SYSGO support and services for quickly solving problems or adding experience in certification management and execution
  • PikeOS is fielded in multiple avionics applications and has been designed for safety and security certification from the beginning, and such applications are SYSGO’s main focus
  • SYSGO is owned by Thales, a leading European Aerospace, Space, Defence, Security and Transportation systems vendor, ensuring supplier stability
  • Reduce export restriction risks - PikeOS is free of export restrictions
