The service-oriented architecture (SOA) has wide use in business computer applications, and Web services to its most common implementation. The use of SOA has also been proposed for embedded systems, although little can be found in the literature about its use for critical embedded systems. This project discusses the use of SOA for the development of this class of systems, more specifically for avionics systems, focusing on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Critical embedded systems have specific requirements such as high reliability and real-time response, making the use of SOA more challenging than in typical applications. The proposed approach considers critical embedded systems are complex non-critical shares (or low criticality) in security, where the use of SOA can help make the development of these parts simpler and more flexible. In particular, SOA should be used for the implementation and definition of services flexible and dynamic, using a framework and the use of SSI/SSP (Smart Sensor Interface/Smart Sensor Protocol), a mechanism plug-and-play for interconnection of smart sensors oriented mission in UAVs in general use.
