Concurrent Real-Time’s RedHawk Linux Awarded Best-in-Show at 2024 MOSA Summit and Expo

Pompano Beach, FL

Four-star Recognition in Category of Embedded Software Showcases Open Systems Architecture

Pompano Beach, FL, June 19th, 2024 – Concurrent Real-Time, a global leader in high-performance
real-time Linux® solutions for mission-critical applications, announced today that its flagship product,
RedHawk™ Linux, was recognized by Embedded Computing Design as Best-in-Show at the 2024
MOSA Summit and Expo
in the category of Embedded Software.

RedHawk Linux is the most advanced, open-sourced Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) available in
the marketplace today. It provides an effective platform for implementing open systems architectures
across various industries and applications by combining real-time capabilities with the flexibility,
compatibility, and robustness of Linux. By supporting a wide range of hardware and software, it is highly
compatible with various systems and platforms, providing the flexibility needed in open systems
architecture. RedHawk Linux fits well into the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) due to its
features and capabilities that align with the principles of modularity, open standards, interoperability,
and upgradability.

“We are deeply honored to be awarded this prestigious recognition by Embedded Computing Design,
at the 2024 MOSA Summit and Expo,” said Gina Rendar, Division Head of Concurrent Real-Time. “Our
RedHawk Linux RTOS adheres to open standards, ensuring interoperability with other systems and
facilitating integration into existing open systems architectures. This compliance helps organizations
avoid vendor lock-in and promotes the use of modular and interchangeable components,” she added.

In April, RedHawk Linux, received Embedded Computing Design’s Best-in-Show Award at NVIDIA’s
2024 GTC AI Conference and Expo in the category of Development Tools & Operating Systems.

RedHawk Linux is based on a modular kernel architecture, allowing for the inclusion or exclusion of
specific features and modules as needed. It benefits from the extensive use of open standards and
protocols commonly supported by the Linux community, enhancing its compatibility with other systems.
Modularity and openness are at its core, making it easier to customize the operating system for
different applications and requirements. Similarly, RedHawk Linux can scale from small embedded
systems to large-scale, multi-core server configurations. This support for a wide range of hardware
architectures makes it suitable for diverse system environments. Such level of compatibility ensures
that it can be integrated into various systems within a MOSA framework.

RedHawk Linux enables real-time performance by supporting microsecond level process dispatch
latencies without changing the look and feel of the original Linux environment. It eliminates the need to
apply complicated custom patches to the OS, allowing developers to focus on their applications.
