RT11 was the DEC single user multitasking Real-Time OS.
It ran with or without memory management hardware in minimal machines.
(What's minimal -- I believe 12-16K Words of memory -- 24-32K Bytes!)

As far as I know there was no TOPS-11, just TOPS-10 and TOPS-20.
The closest thing to TOPS-10 or TOPS-20 on a PDP11 was probably
RSTS/E -- or IAS-11...
