SYSGO, SYSTEREL Team on Critical Embedded Real Time Systems Development

SYSGO, leading supplier of software solutions for the most demanding safety and security applications, and SYSTEREL, specialized in developing embedded real time or safety critical systems, announced a new partnership based on complementary offerings and a similar core business synergy.

SYSGO has for several years constructed their business model around in-house COTS products like ELinOS and PikeOS sales and an expansion of global coverage. Created three years ago, the French office has seen significant growth, especially in the avionics and defense areas. Partnering with SYSTEREL was straightforward, as this highly dynamic company has a range of services very complementary to SYSGO’s product offering and targets the same industry sectors, with a significant presence in the railway and nuclear industries.

“We share with SYSGO many things like the areas of expertise, the target markets, and the way we handle customer relationships,” says François Bustany, CEO of SYSTEREL. “We had the opportunity to evaluate their products. They are impressively innovative and meeting the expectations of our customers, who are particularly demanding in terms of safety and security. What makes our partnership look even more promising is today actual requests for this type of offering in new industrial sectors.”

SYSTEREL’s steady growth since its creation has been built upon a strong differentiation and a clear focus on the safety- and security-critical embedded real time systems development business. Their engineering offering is way above average industry standards regarding quality level, and the company has built a strong reputation among its customers thanks to a total involvement in projects.

“Because of the great success of our product lines, especially our virtualization solution for safe and secure embedded real time based on our PikeOS micro-kernel, we are facing an increasing number of requests for assistance and project support”, said Jacques Brygier, VP Marketing at SYSGO. “We have been impressed by the complementary nature and the very high level of SYSTEREL’s core competence, and we consider they would be the ideal partner to participate in our growth.”

“We are proud to be a SYSGO partner,” concluded François Bustany. “It shows our determination to propose to our customers great added value solutions for their business. This partnership strengthens our position in our long time market segments like transportation and nuclear, and our strategy to expand to other segments like avionics, space and defense.”

The terms of the agreement are not disclosed but starting today, SYSTEREL will actively promote PikeOS and ELinOS product lines, and SYSGO will involve its new partner in handling new opportunities.

In addition to PikeOS(TM), SYSGO’s real-time operating system and virtualization solution for safety-critical systems, and ELinOS(TM), SYSGO’s embedded Linux development environment, the company offers development of device drivers, board support packages and firmware.
