Modern digital I&C safety systems require a hard realtime OS, yes it's true!
The timer tick of a system I know is 1 ms.
The response time of the I&C safety system to start the shutdown of the reactor in case of emergency is typically in the range below 1s.
You need a realtime OS, but the timig requirements are less dramatic than we think.
