Since I first learned about QNX I am still amazed by all the things it powers. The latest I found is that
QNX is being used to power the Neptec Laser Camera System (LCS), according to Paul Leroux of QNX the LCS has been:
A part of every Space Shuttle flight since 2005, the LCS is a high-precision 3D scanner that can detect the tiniest fractures in the shuttle’s heat shield, even if they’re only a few millimeters in size. Just as important, the LCS provides NASA with the data to determine whether a fracture poses any threat to the shuttle crew.
QNX runs the systems that protect the astronauts from burning up in the atmosphere. Want to know more about how QNX is used in the Neptec Laser Camera System?
