Luciad Display Product Used in FAA Terminal Flight Data Manager Reference Implementation

WASHINGTON DC, November 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

An aviation-oriented display product from Luciad, the market leader in high performance visualization for Situational Awareness applications in Aviation, was  used for a key component of the US Federal Aviation Administration Terminal Flight Data Manager (FAA TFDM) reference implementation at the Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) International airport.

The FAA commissioned MIT Lincoln Laboratory (MIT LL) to develop a prototype reference implementation for TFDM, a new terminal automation platform.  MIT LL selected Luciad software for the development of the Tower Information Display System (TIDS) traffic situational awareness prototype display and completed the initial implementation in less than 4 months.  The prototype TIDS display was shadow demonstrated in field tests at the DFW airport, and Human-In-The-Loop (HITL) simulation tests at the FAA William J. Hughes Technical Center in 2010 & 2011.

"The speed of development of the Luciad software, combined with the support for open aeronautical exchange models and 4D data representation, enabled MIT LL to rapidly develop the reference implementation," said Lode Missiaen, CEO at Luciad Inc. "Luciad is pleased that its products are used by MIT LL to set the standard and demonstrate advanced Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) concepts in the TIDS application."

The Luciad based TIDS application provides an integrated tower-user display suite for surface traffic information, taxi routing and airport status. Luciad's technology allows the consolidation of disparate legacy tower systems into a single common operating picture and provides a highly scalable architecture.

The FAA solicitation release for the full operational TFDM capability is expected in Q4 2013 with award in Q3 2014.

DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DatacenterDynamics has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 18th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on June 7–9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. DatacenterDynamics is a brand of DCD Group, a global B2B media and publishing company that develops products to help senior professionals in the world's most ICT dependent organizations make risk-based infrastructure and capacity decisions.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
Consumer-driven contracts are an essential part of a mature microservice testing portfolio enabling independent service deployments. In this presentation we'll provide an overview of the tools, patterns and pain points we've seen when implementing contract testing in large development organizations.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
