Intel staff lay off

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, It turns out that last week, Intel decided to axe several of it's most experienced staff at it's "Wind River" facility which has been involved in the development of VxWorks for NASA rovers, spacecraft, military computer systems and industry, news site "The Register", were told by one of those who got the axe;

 

 

"Wind River, which is a subsidiary of Intel, has just laid off many of their long-term employees, some who have worked there for 25 years,"

 

"They have laid off the last engineer who worked on the version of the operating system used on spacecraft."

 

This comes almost a year after Wind River was fined $750,000 for exporting encryption to places such as China and also after a major security bug was found in VxWorks this month.

This round of redundencies is rather surprising given that many people, including those at "The Register", said;

 

 

The operating system is otherwise a very neat piece of kit that supports multi-processor systems, and multiple guest operating systems on its hypervisor. It is focused on providing a secure, deterministic, and reliable base on which critical software for military, aerospace, medical, energy, and robotics applications can run. It is now playing a role in Intel's Internet-of-Things push.

 

River Farm wouldn't comment about the redundencies but Jessica Miller, Wind River's director of corporate communications, did tell The Register;

 

 

"Wind River does not comment on personnel matters and we don’t engage in speculation about these kinds of matters,"

 

What does this mean for space exploration? Only time will tell, links to news sources are below so you can read the full details.

"Equality."

 

Intel is all about that equality checklist, but they're going to continue to axe jobs.

Isn't Intel switching to all automated manufacturing anyway? Maybe this place just the first on the chopping block because of recent events it had been involved.
