Abstract

RODOS is a real-time operating system which is mainly developed at the chair of Aerospace Information Technology at the University of Würzburg and at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). It is available as open source software for a variety of embedded hardware. RODOS is used for several aerospace projects and it is actually running in orbit. The talk gives a short introduction into RODOS itself and briefly presents some of its applications in the field of Aerospace and beyond.
