Relates to hardware and software systems that have or must meet guaranteed operational timing constraints/deadlines normally in relation to a start of an event to system receipt or response.

Relates to hardware and software systems that have or must meet guaranteed operational timing constraints/deadlines normally in relation to a start of an event to system receipt or response. Normally this domain involves mission critical systems. Sometimes near real-time, i.e. without significant delay gets confused for real-time; however, in terms of timing there can be significant differences microseconds vs milliseconds, and without any performance guarantees. [near-real-time]
