RTSJ Specification Profiles for Hard Real-Time and Safety Critical Java
Meeting minutes and preliminary specifications of the working group on the Safety Critical Java™ Standard.

Technology initiatives based on the RTSJ profiles are currently being productized by Aonix. Read more about these technologies here:

  • Aonix Perc Pico is the Atego solution specifically designed for applications with demanding requirements for small footprint, fast execution, and low level device access. Benchmarks have shown Pico applications can run as fast or faster than comparable C/C++ programs, while being fully predictable and memory efficient.
  • Aonix Perc Raven is a highly specialized Java virtual machine engineered to be certifiable to the highest levels of safety certification, such as DO-178B Level A. It builds on the principles of the JSR-302 Java standard for safety-critical applications including diverse avionics, space, and transportation systems where lives are on the line.
