BoF: Using Linux in Air Traffic Control - Gerolf Ziegenhain, DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can Open Source Software and safety critical systems work together? DFS GmbH relies on Linux for its core air traffic control systems. We have successfully managed to standardize a highly reliable, modular operating system and hardware platform at DFS.

In a brief overview we explain the challenges, technical and non-technical ones, we have faced getting to the modular platforms. What approaches did we take and why? Which ones did work out in the long end? We will cover a broad range of aspects ranging from hardware life cycles, application lifecycles, regulations, deployment solutions, user acceptance, cost cutting and testing.
