The open standard OpenGL ES Safety Critical Profile is defined to meet the unique needs of the safety-critical market for avionics, industrial, military, medical and automotive applications including D0178-B certification. It simplifies safety-critical certification, guarantees repeatability, allows compliance with real-time requirements, and facilitates porting of legacy safety-critical applications. Since desktop OpenGL was not designed with Safety-Critical certification in mind, many avionic companies created a subset of OpenGL themselves. OpenGL ES-SC creates a common standard that will be used by avionics, transportation, industrial and real-time fault-intolerant applications.
