Vanguard was an experimental microkernel developed at Apple Computer in the early 1990s. Based on the V-System, Vanguard introduced standardized object identifiers and a unique "message chaining" system for improved performance. Vanguard was not used in any of Apple's commercial products, and development ended in 1997 when Apple's research group (ATG) was dismantled.
