The platform’s open architecture design has the flexibility to allow future growth with the insertion of both commercial and military innovations. Standardizing on one platform provides Collins Aerospace with cost effective way to upgrade, manage safety certification program risk, integrate legacy software, and ensure standards conformance.

The Helix Platform uses multi-OS virtualization to enable integration of mixed-criticality applications onto a single compute software platform. Applications can be legacy or new capability, based on industry standards such as ARINC 653, POSIX, or FACE, and based on operating systems such as Linux, VxWorks, containers and other technologies.
