Issaquah: In a move to reduce costs, BAE Systems, a defence, security and aerospace firm has pitched with McObject to deploy the in-memory embedded database running on Wind River's VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS). The deal is an avionics upgrade for BAE's Panavia Tornado GR4 multi-role combat jet.

eXtremeDB implementation is expected to improvise the jet's day and night travels through advanced radar, mapping and navigation technology that allows low-level flying even when poor weather prevents visual flight. Within the Panavia Tornado GR4, eXtremeDB is part of a new embedded software system that adds Tactical Data Link capability to the Tornado Advanced Radar/Map Display Information System (TARDIS). The TARDIS displays a moving digital map overlaid with radar and tactical data.

As an in-memory database system (IMDS) designed for embedded systems, eXtremeDB embedded database manages information such as aircraft/ship/vehicle positions, and is updated in real-time from multiple sources, including GPS receivers. "It helped us to develop the application within a shorter timeframe," said Alex Payne, Engineering Project Manager, BAE Systems. McObject's eXtremeDB provides a portable database management system that meets the requirements and resource constraints of embedded systems and other connected devices. eXtremeDB provides data management features, including transactions, concurrent access, and high-level data definition language, with a code footprint of 50K.
