"Red Hat today announced that Rymic Systems has chosen Red Hat's uClinux port as the operating system for a prototypical vehicle monitoring device soon to be tested by the United States Army. The embedded device will be incorporated in the Bradley fighting vehicles, heavy expanded mobility tactical trucks and humvees -- potentially up to 50,000 Army trucks, service and fighting vehicles."

"The Internet device will be tried initially at Fort Riley, Kansas."

"Under the terms of this agreement, Red Hat's uClinux will be used as the operating system for Rymic's first series of rymicNET Internet devices, designed for vehicle diagnostics and predictive failure analysis, initially to be tested in United States Army ground vehicles. uClinux is designed to run in less than 512k of memory while maintaining all of the stability, networking and file system support advantages of the standard Linux distribution."
