Using resources integration technology to design the fault-tolerant military systems

The network military technologies depends to a great extent on the interconnected platforms, weaponry and communications as well as the sensor systems, each containing the smart capabilities and thus, making it vulnerable to the software errors, huckers' attacks and simply erroneous code. One of the methods for guaranteed protection of the global information network from the effect of the faults of its individual systems is to utilize the operating systems featuring the resources integration functions. Using patented QNX adaptive decomposition technology provides the guaranteed runtime for real time applications, neutralizes the threats and protects the system.

Cheapening of industrial control system design by using adaptive decomposition of system resources

As the complexity and volume of codes increase, so does the probability of processor time shortage at the final stage of system development: the process of debugging and integration of the system becomes more sophisticated, and detection and removal of faults become more time-consuming and expensive. The risk that the processor resources will be spent on executing failure-inducing programs is eliminated by using a patented adaptive decomposition technology that assures real-time processor resource allocation between applications. Debugging expenses due to processor resource shortage are cut, and the final product becomes more reliable and protected and comes into the market faster.

QNX: Cluster calculations

In this article, by the example of particular run-time programs, it is shown how you can easily organize the parallel work of several net points on the calculation process, using specific features of the real-time operation system QNX. Such organization can be used for a significant growth of the computer system's performance and for wide range of practical tasks. One can state a common for QNX absence of priority inversion in the distributed system, which is especially important for the reliable operation of the real-time system.
