Real 92 is a new combined specification language for concurrent processes based on nondeterministic dialect of Specification and Design Language (SDL) and on dynamic version of Computation Tree Logic (CTL), both — SDL and CTL — with a real time. The paper includes a survey of syntax and sketch of operational semantics of Real 92, specification examples of systems and properties of concurrent communicating real-time processes.
