How Concurrent Can Help

When the mission is critical and failure is never an option, aerospace and defense organizations worldwide rely on Concurrent’s real-time Linux operating system, development tools and integrated hardware platforms in a wide range of defense applications, including:

  • Weapons system control
  • Warfighter training
  • Radar data analysis
  • Defense system simulation and testing

Our unique, high-performance solutions are used in critical deployments like the U.S. Navy’s Aegis Combat System. A state-of-the-art, automated weapons system, Aegis is capable of real-time, simultaneous operations against multi-mission threats.


U.S. Navy Open Architecture Program

Concurrent Real-Time has been selected as a key software supplier in the Navy’s Open Architecture program. Lockheed Martin made that choice because of our real-time RedHawk Linux operating system, NightStar development and analysis tools, and our reliable long-term program support. Concurrent solutions allow military organizations to install software and other technology upgrades faster and less expensively.
