A process-oriented operating system, the Duplex Multiple Environment Real Time (DMERT) operating system, was designed for the 3B20D Processor and offers both real-time and time-shared operation, with emphasis on high availability. The design objectives and architecture of the DMERT operating system and an explanation of how the system performance is characterized are presented. A companion article describes in depth the DMERT operating system design. 
The 3B20D Processor & DMERT operating system: Diagnostic tests and control software
TLDR
The 3B20D diagnostics provide a high degree of modularity and portability using an operating-system-based structure, and is used in a wide range of development, production, and maintenance activities throughout the project life cycle.

TLDR
The key insight is that by making the basic network service selectable on a per user (or even per packet) basis, the need for formal standardization is eliminated and the deployment times, today constrained by capital funding limitations, are tremendously reduced.
