OSIRIS -- A DISTRIBUTED FAULT-TOLERANT CONTROL SYSTEM

OSIRIS is an Onboard Survivable Integrated Redundant Information System, being developed for a variety of control applications, and in particular for commercial transport aircraft. The system elements include a fault-to-tolerant multiprocessor, a damage-and fault-tolerant network, distributed local processors, and operational software for fault detection, identification, and recovery for the entire system. This article briefly describes the kinds of applications for which OSIRIS is intended, the architecture of the system and the precepts that have guided its development, and the current status of the experimental configuration.
