Wind River to Showcase Secure Android Solution at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America

Unmanned Systems North America 2012

ALAMEDA, Calif.--Wind River®, a world leader in embedded and mobile software, will exhibit at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America 2012, August 7-9 in Las Vegas, NV. Wind River will showcase the latest embedded software capabilities supporting unmanned systems.

Wind River will offer a range of demonstrations featuring its comprehensive portfolio of software solutions, including solutions focused on software security and safety, as well as embedded system simulation and automated test environments for unmanned systems.

Wind River will showcase a secure Android tablet that combines situational awareness with communications and control for unmanned systems. Securing mobile tactical edge devices on ad-hoc networks, as well as mobile devices on commercial networks, requires leveraging advancements in trusted silicon capability, extending certified secure operating system features to Android, and weaving in application-level security functionality into the secure embedded system fabric.

The demo will feature Wind River's secure Android platform that combines the National Security Agency-developed Security Enhanced (SE) Android with Wind River security solution accelerators, a series of software modules to help jumpstart Android development and rapidly integrate compelling features and functionalities to devices. On top of this secure foundation, the company will demonstrate a multi-windowing capability that allows multiple Android applications to run simultaneously.

A founding member and original commercialization partner of the Open Handset Alliance, Wind River has invested significantly in the design and implementation of comprehensive security layers on a broad spectrum of Android devices, and continues to lead efforts behind Android's expansion into traditional embedded device categories. The company's deep Android expertise, combined with its extensive background and technologies for the aerospace and defense market segment, puts Wind River in a unique position to address the challenges and key considerations in securing Android across a variety of use cases.

Additional demonstrations taking place at Wind River's booth No. 2824 will include:

*Safe and secure FACE (Future Airborne Capability Environment) for unmanned systems with Wind River's VxWorks® 653: This time- and space-partitioning operating system, which has been certified to DO-178B Level A and is compliant with DO-178C, is used to create robust platforms for both airborne and ground-based systems.

*Unmanned platform simulation with Wind River Simics: This full system simulation solution creates a high-performance virtual environment in which any electronic system-from a single board up to complex, heterogeneous, multi-core systems-can be defined, developed, and deployed.

*Automated testing for secure mobility with Wind River's testing solutions: The Wind River test management solution is an automated test framework that identifies high-risk segments in production code, enabling change-based, optimized testing. The company's framework for automated software testing is designed to help developers improve the quality and compliance of Android-based device designs, and includes the full Android Compatibility Test Suite (CTS), open source tests, and Wind River-authored tests.

AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America is the premier forum for reviewing, assessing, and discussing the current state of the unmanned systems market. More information about the conference can be found at

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
