Tornado GR4 Goes Extreme
By Paul Parkinson
In case you missed the news, our partner McObject has just announced that BAE SYSTEMS has selected the eXtremeDB running on VxWorks for the Tornado Advanced Radar Display Information System (TARDIS) on the Tornado GR4 military jet.
This avionics upgrade further extends the capabilities of TARDIS (which I discussed in a previous blog, and also in a customer case study (PDF)), by using the McObject eXtremeDB
embedded database to manage tactical information such as aircraft,
ship, and vehicle positions provided from real-time sources and overlay
it onto a digital map and radar display.
