Boeing extends use of MapuSoft OS Abstractor for U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems program

MOBILE, Ala., 5 Oct. 2007. MapuSoft Technologies (MT) announced that The Boeing Company, acting as the lead systems integrator (LSI) for the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems (FCS) program, has restructured its use of MapuSoft's OS Abstractor solution to be a system-wide development utilization in the current build of its System of Systems Common Operating Environment (SOSCOE) architecture.

MOBILE, Ala., 5 Oct. 2007. MapuSoft Technologies (MT) announced that The Boeing Company, acting as the lead systems integrator (LSI) for the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems (FCS) program, has restructured its use of MapuSoft's OS Abstractor solution to be a system-wide development utilization in the current build of its System of Systems Common Operating Environment (SOSCOE) architecture.

MapuSoft's OS Abstractor is also being adapted and validated to inter-operate across an additional operating system for this build. OS Abstractor provides SOSCOE an industry-standard POSIX application-programming interface (API) for software development and deployment of applications across multiple operating systems.

OS Abstractor APIs give users the ability to develop code independent of the underlying OS to protect software investment and to expand support to multiple operating systems. It consists of BASIC and POSIX components.

The BASIC component offers a standard OS interface architecture that is flexible and intuitive for application development. The POSIX component offers industry-standard API compliance for new code development and/or re-use of existing POSIX code base across multiple OS platforms. OS Abstractor protects software investment by eliminating the risks associated with OS selection and/or use of proprietary API features. Because OS Abstractor allows developers to use a standard API interface across multiple OS platforms the costs and time associated with code maintenance and learning multiple operating systems are greatly reduced.
