Strategies for Open Architecture COTS Operating Systems

July 20, 2017

As choices made early in the software development lifecycle have major implications on an application’s long-term viability, the choice of operating system (OS), libraries, and tools can often make or break application portability and ease of development when creating future-proof defense systems. In particular, these choices boil down to the adoption of standard interfaces and services; the use of products supported by multiple, stable vendors with broad customer bases and large market share; interoperability with minimal integration; ease of scalability and upgradability; and portability of applications and users.

In this white paper from Abaco Systems, software developers will learn:

  • Best practices for selecting OS solutions that conform to Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) standards
  • How proper library selection can proffer application portability and scalability
  • The importance of selecting tools that do not interfere with open architecture (OA) requirements or the development of future-proof aerospace and defense systems
