The HAL-RTOS is certified by CEMILAC for airborne applications and is being used in the development of indigenous avionics systems within HAL. The RTOS is based on international standards such as ARINC-653 and provides the underlying system with absolute reliability, maximum real-time performance and enhanced security.
The HAL-RTOS is also suitable for use in nuclear applications such as the Instrumentation and Control Systems. The use of HAL-RTOS will not only ensure real-time application execution in a fault-tolerant manner but also enhance the overall safety and security of the nuclear power plant.
