The open source solutions provider said May 6 the Red Hat Open Innovation Labs worked to help Lockheed’s aeronautics business move from the waterfall development process to Agile, as well as create an open architecture based on the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, in an effort to accelerate the rollout of new software-defined capabilities for the F-22 aircraft.
