Nexter Selects PrismTech’s OpenSplice DDS Middleware for Next Generation Military Vehicles Architecture

OpenSplice DDS is ideal for Manned and Unmanned Vehicles.

Nexter LogoBoston, MA, USA and Paris, France — September 20, 2010 — PrismTech™, a global leader in standards-based, performance-critical middleware, today announced that Nexter has selected OpenSplice™ DDS as the middleware infrastructure at the heart of its next generation Military Vehicle Architecture demonstrator. The selection of OpenSplice DDS came after an in depth evaluation of the various Data Distribution Service (DDS) compliant implementations on the market against the key requirements imposed by Vetronics.

Nexter, a leading supplier of land defense systems for numerous armed forces, is using OpenSplice DDS as an enabling technology at the foundation of its next generation reconfigurable, multi-role, fault-resilient, maintainable, and cost effective vehicles.

Nexter and PrismTech have jointly defined and implemented a number of DDS innovations that further the benefits and extend the applicability of DDS for military vehicles. These extensions have proven very effective during the development of the Nexter Integrated Modular Vetronics demonstrator, greatly speeding up the development and integration of the modules.

“Military Vehicles are currently going through a disruptive wave of innovation. It is very exciting to see OpenSplice DDS take such a fundamental role in enabling so many key innovations,” said Angelo Corsaro, OpenSplice DDS CTO, PrismTech. “Nexter’s choice of OpenSplice DDS reinforces the momentum that this technology is having with both manned and unmanned vehicles.”
