Embraer Selects RTI Connext DDS for KC-390 Mission Computer System

RTI Enhances Software Development for Mission Critical Avionics

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/13 -- Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the real-time infrastructure software company, today announced that Embraer Defense and Security has selected Connext™ DDS (Data Distribution Service) for the software development of its KC-390 military transport aircraft mission computer. With this announcement, RTI also expands its presence into South America.

"RTI is honored that Embraer has selected our Connext DDS solution to aid in software development for their KC-390 military aircraft," said Curt Schacker, chief commercial officer at RTI. "Defense procurement is shifting and RTI is pioneering the way toward interoperable open architecture (IOA) for high-performance distributed systems. Our leading-edge technology enables faster deployment and increased software development productivity for large-scale, mission critical systems."

With more than 40 years of experience in supplying superior platforms and systems to armed forces around the world, Embraer Defense and Security has a growing presence in the global market and fulfills a strategic role in Brazil's defense system. Embraer Defense and Security's portfolio includes military airplanes, state-of-the-art radar technologies, unmanned drones, and advanced information and communications systems, such as Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence and Surveillance and Reconnaissance applications (C4ISR). Embraer aircraft and military solutions are found among more than 50 armed forces in 48 countries.

Embraer is currently developing the KC-390, a twin-engine military airplane primarily designed to transport cargo and troops and perform aerial refueling. The KC-390 uses state-of-the-art avionics and is now making use of Connext DDS to increase software development productivity for the KC-390 Mission Computer.

Embraer is using Connext DDS on its multi-processor Mission Computer to integrate software applications running on top of different CPUs and operating systems. The Israeli Air Force is currently using Connext DDS on VxWorks 653 for the IMA of the F-35's that they are buying from the U.S.

Connext DDS reduces the time, cost and risk of adopting a real-time Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Open Architecture (OA). With the highest U.S. DoD maturity level, TRL 9, Connext DDS is a perfect fit to aid software development for Embraer's KC-390 Mission Computer and is used for inter-partition communications as well as inter-node communications. With Connext DDS, Embraer will have the flexibility to add new software functions to the Mission Computer with little to no disruption to the current software.

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?

"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.

They are not.

One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

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.

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...
