RTI and Curtiss-Wright Extend DDS to the Embedded Defense Market

Collaboration Enables Digital Signal Processing (DSP) in the Harshest Environments

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the real-time infrastructure software company, today announced a technology collaboration with Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions (CWCDS), long established technology leader in the development of rugged electronic modules and systems for defense and aerospace applications. The initiative broadens the leading implementation of the Object Management Group (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard within the embedded defense market.

CWCDS is part of the Curtiss-Wright Corporation, whose roots began with aviation legends Glenn Curtiss and the Wright brothers. Curtiss-Wright has a long history of manufacturing innovative products and services for the defense, energy, industrial and commercial industries. Digital signal processing (DSP), or measuring, filtering and compressing real-world analog signals, is mission critical in the Aerospace and Defense market. The Curtiss-Wright CHAMP-AV8 dual Intel®Core®-i7 DSP board is now making use of RTI's Connext Data Distribution Service (DDS) solution to simplify and enhance the use of digital signal processing in the harshest environments.

With today's announcement, RTI and Curtiss-Wright extend DDS beyond the high performance computing (HPC) market to embedded defense. RTI Connext™ DDS bundles basic tools for data visualization and system-of-systems debugging to enhance productivity in mission-critical systems. With Connext DDS, embedded military platform integrators can reduce the time, cost and risk of adopting a real-time Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Open Architecture (OA). Curtiss-Wright now offers RTI Connext DDS as an additional component in its High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) software platform, which is subject to extensive testing and verification to insure maturity and robustness.

The CHAMP-AV8 board coupled with RTI Connext DDS puts high-performance digital signal processing close to the sensor in the harshest environments. The CHAMP-AV8 is used by sensor integrators to transform raw data into actionable information that improves situational awareness. Connext DDS enables this information to be disseminated to various subscribers according to their unique quality-of-service requirements. DDS is now being referenced in defense industry open platform architecture definitions such as the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Reference Architecture. RTI Connext DDS on the CHAMP-AV8 supports Fedora 15 and Red Hat 6.1 Linux, with RTI Connext DDS available as static or linkable libraries.

Comments on the News

"Curtiss-Wright has invested significant resources to create an open architecture HPEC software platform that runs on highly-ruggedized, COTS computing infrastructure," said Lynn Bamford, senior vice president and general manager of Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions. "RTI's technology provides an interoperable open architecture (IOA) middleware that will enable our defense customers to process and publish sensor data in real-time. With Curtiss-Wright and RTI's technologies working together, warfighters will receive the real-time data that they need in order to complete their mission."

"Teaming with Curtiss-Wright to extend DDS to the embedded defense market and enhance digital signal processing delivers another proof point for open architecture data distribution in military and aerospace computing," said Curt Schacker, chief commercial officer at RTI. "Interoperable open architecture (IOA) enables disparate systems to fit together, making it easier for developers to deploy technology across multiple platforms, operating systems and over time to accommodate ongoing product evolution and revisions. IOA is the future of defense procurement and we're happy to lay the groundwork for interoperability through joint initiatives like this one."

I read an insightful article this morning from Bernard Golden on DZone discussing the DevOps conundrum facing many enterprises today – is it better to build your own DevOps tools or go commercial? For Golden, the question arose from his observations at a number of DevOps Days events he has attended, where typically the audience is composed of startup professionals: “I have to say, though, that a typical feature of most presentations is a recitation of the various open source products and compo...
Do you think development teams really update those BMC Remedy tickets with all the changes contained in a release? They don't. Most of them just "check the box" and move on. They rose a Risk Level that won't raise questions from the Change Control managers and they work around the checks and balances. The alternative is to stop and wait for a department that still thinks releases are rare events. When a release happens every day there's just not enough time for people to attend CAB meeting...
There is no question that the cloud is where businesses want to host data. Until recently hypervisor virtualization was the most widely used method in cloud computing. Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...

This is the final installment of the six-part series Microservices and PaaS. It seems like forever since I attended Adrian Cockroft's meetup focusing on microservices. It's actually only been a couple of months, but much has happened since then: countless articles, meetups, and conference sessions focusing on microservices have been delivered, many meetings and design efforts at companies moving towards a microservices-based approach have been endured, and five installments of this blog series ...
You often hear the two titles of "DevOps" and "Immutable Infrastructure" used independently. In his session at DevOps Summit, John Willis, Technical Evangelist for Docker, will cover the union between the two topics and why this is important. He will cover an overview of Immutable Infrastructure then show how an Immutable Continuous Delivery pipeline can be applied as a best practice for "DevOps." He will end the session with some interesting case study examples.
Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...

If you haven't seen it yet, you should watch the video of Solomon's Pycon The Future of Linux C...
Virtualization is everywhere. Enormous and highly profitable companies have been built on nothing but virtualization. And nowhere has virtualization made more of an impact than in Cloud Computing, the rampant and unprecedented adoption of which has been the direct result of the wide availability of virtualization software and techniques that enabled it. But does the cloud actually require virtualization?
