SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - May 18, 2015) - Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity platform company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "Learn About the FACE Standard for Avionics Software and Ready-to-Go COTS Platform," in partnership with Wind River. David Barnett, Vice President of Products and Markets at RTI and Chip Downing, Senior Director of Business Development at Wind River will provide an overview of the FACE Technical Standard 2.1 and show how integrated COTS products provide a ready-to-go platform for developing, integrating and deploying portable FACE components.

The Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) technical and business standards are driving new efficiencies in avionics platforms. FACE enables platform integrators to rapidly assemble best-of-breed technologies with commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components that have proven safety certification credentials. This reduces integration and certification/airworthiness risk while improving reuse across both manned and unmanned systems.

The FACE Technical Standard is a standard of standards. For software portability, it leverages over 100 proven-in-service APIs including POSIX, ARINC 653, OpenGL, and the Data Distribution Service (DDS). For interoperability, it specifies a data model with well-defined semantics and syntax. It couples these with business models that encourage rapid innovation. These standards are driving a new era of COTS avionics solutions in both military and commercial markets.

In this free webinar, attendees will learn the fundamentals of the FACE architecture, the efficiencies of using proven COTS components for integrating FACE solution stacks and how to reduce risk by using COTS DO-178C certification evidence in certified development processes.
