Technical Advisory Board

LynuxWorks™ continues to increase penetration into the military and aerospace segments by leveraging our technical advisory board. In order to expand sales into the military and aerospace industry segments, in 1998 LynuxWorks established a technical advisory board made up of former senior U.S. Defense Department executives and consultants.

We believe that our technical advisory board provides us a distinct competitive advantage due to the board members' unique insight into the needs of military and aerospace customers.
