RTOS & Hypervisor

The core of the PikeOS operating system is a bare metal, type 1 hypervisor that offers embedded virtualization while still maintaining strict real time capabilities. Its primary domain is the virtualization of Safety- or Security-critical environments with a huge software basis, typically running state of the art algorithms alongside legacy code. PikeOS has its origins in the ARINC 653 standard, allowing to execute virtual machines with different degrees of criticality on the same hardware.

Due to its minimalistic design, the separation kernel is hardened against Cyber Security attacks of all kinds, allowing to build secure systems and gateways.

Nowadays, PikeOS is present in all markets that require safe, secure and  cost efficient solutions, such as Avionics, Defense, Space, Automotive, Industrial Automation and Medical.

The OS has provided evidence of its suitability in multiple projects that have undergone certification at the highest levels of Safety and Security.
