Modern aircraft are built with many different compute systems that could potentially be running different operating systems. Now, the time is rapidly approaching when suppliers will be able to manage their applications in the field more easily.

Containers are an engineering solution to the many challenges that rise around managing the distributed avionics software. One of their biggest advantages is to get software to run reliably when moved, allowing suppliers to push information and software updates in order to manage and orchestrate software subsystems.
