Green Hills Software Powers Next-generation of Military Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Boeing Looks to Green Hills for Safety and Security in the X-45 Joint Unmanned Combat Air Systems


SANTA BARBARA, CA —July 19, 2004 —Green Hills Software, Inc., today announced that The Boeing Company has selected Green Hills Software's real-time operating system (RTOS) and software development tools for development and deployment of the X-45C Joint Unmanned Combat Air System (J-UCAS).

The X-45C's Vehicle Management System (VMS), currently under development by Boeing Integrated Defense Systems, will use Green Hills' INTEGRITY-178B real-time embedded operating system. The VMS embedded software application for the X-45C will be developed with Green Hills' AdaMULTI integrated development environment tools.

The J-UCAS X-45 program is a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency/U.S. Air Force/U.S. Navy/Boeing effort to demonstrate the technical feasibility, military utility and operational value of a networked system of unmanned air vehicles for both the Air Force and the Navy. Operational missions for the services may include suppression of enemy air defenses; deep strike; electronic attack; and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. The aircraft autonomously performs all attack maneuvers, bay door operations and weapon-away release sequences under human operator supervision.
