Herndon, Va. – Objective Interface's ORBexpress communications middleware has been selected for evaluation under the U.S. government's Common Criteria, the world's most widely adopted security certification standard.
ORBexpress is undergoing this certification for the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter's Communications, Navigation and Identification (CNI) system, an advanced and complex avionics system that must be certified to comply with rigorous security requirements.
The certification of ORBexpress will save programs significant time and money by making it easier and faster to develop and certify secure systems using fully evaluated COTS communications middleware.
The CNI system, being developed by Northrop Grumman for the F-35's prime contractor, Lockheed Martin, is a crucial component for the success of the F-35's advanced warfighting mission. The CNI system needs the highest level of security to insure seamless and uninterrupted performance on the battlefield.
