Green Hills Software today announced that Kongsberg Defence Systems has selected Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS) and MULTI® integrated development environment for the Joint Strike Missile program. This development will additionally utilize the Green Hills Probe advanced hardware debugger and networking middleware.
Kongsberg will use the INTEGRITY RTOS in multiple, multicore computers on the Joint Strike Missile (JSM), which is being developed initially for the Royal Norwegian Air Force. The JSM will be mounted externally or internally in the bomb bay of the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. It is intended for anti-surface warfare and naval fire support missions over sea and land. In parallel, the Green Hills Software products will be used in the telemetric, safety launch and planning software for JSM.

“INTEGRITY’s pedigree within aerospace and defense applications, and history of delivering functional safety-related BSPs, made it the leading contender for the JSM,” said Harald Ånnestad, president of Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace. “We wanted a proven, reliable RTOS with a rich ecosystem of development tools and support for our chosen Freescale Power Architecture processor. Having conducted a detailed technical evaluation, we concluded that the Green Hills debugging technology is our choice. Green Hills Software provided a solution that enabled us to embark on a long term project with confidence.”

Christopher Smith, vice president of marketing for Green Hills Software added, “As the leading supplier of embedded software products to the avionics industry, Green Hills Software is proud to be supporting Kongsberg on these projects. Our EMEA Engineering Centre in the Netherlands will be developing board support packages and working closely with the Kongsberg team to ensure all requirements are satisfied.”
