PrismTech and RTTS Extend Partnership to Provide Unparalleled Support to Developers of Combat and Battlefield Management Systems in India

DefensePrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems and RTTS (RealTime TechSolutions), a systems integration specialist to defense customers that need extreme levels of performance and reliability, said today they will extend their eight-year partnership. The companies will focus on delivering technology and services that simplify combat management system development and dramatically reduce development time.

RTTS

Over the past eight years, RTTS have developed their engineering, consulting and support teams to a high level of DDS expertise, allowing developers based in India to benefit from first line support in their own time zone.

“RTTS’s team now has over 150+ man years of experience with DDS which makes us unique in India,” said Raj Rajagopolan, Director, RTTS. “I am excited to continue to grow our business with the extension of our partnership with PrismTech.”

The Indian Government are committing to develop many new combat and battlefield management systems. PrismTech and RTTS’s extended partnership will see continued growth in the use of Vortex OpenSplice in these programs.

PrismTech’s Vortex OpenSplice is the leading (commercial and Open Source) implementation of the Object Management Group™’s (OMG™) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard. Vortex OpenSplice has been designed to optimally address the real-time information distribution and management challenges posed by high performance real-time data-processing systems.

Vortex 2.1 is now available

Vortex 2.1 includes the following new functionality:

  • Client side Durability is now supported by both Vortex Lite and Vortex Café. This means that TRANSIENT and PERSISTENT Durability QoS policies can now be used by both Vortex Lite and Vortex Café applications provided that at least one Vortex OpenSplice™ Durability Service is deployed in the same system.

  • Vortex Lite now includes support for extensible data models based on Google Protocol Buffers (GPB). GPB is a language-neutral, platform-neutral extensible mechanism for serializing structured data developed by Google. The benefit of using GPBs is that they are extensible and can be updated without breaking programs that are compiled against “older” data structure definitions. This ability enables systems and their data models to evolve dynamically without major application re-engineering. GPB support in Vortex Lite is currently available for the ISO C++ API. GPB support is already available in Vortex OpenSplice (Java, C and ISO C++) and will be available shortly in Vortex Café.

  • Vortex OpenSplice also includes a number of new features, including:

    • It is now possible to detach from all domains. A new operation has been added to the DomainParticipantFactory in the DDS API that allows you to detach your application safely from all Domains it is participating in with one single call.

    • The naming of DomainParticipant, Publisher, Subscriber, DataWriter and DataReader entities has been improved. When visualized with one of the Vortex tools (Insight, Tuner or Tester) the improved naming makes it easier for users to relate entities to their applications.

    • A new section called “Controls” has been introduced to Vortex OpenSplice Launcher. This section contains buttons to easily start and stop an OpenSplice domain based on the active ospl config file in Launcher. When the user clicks on the start/stop button, a progress bar is displayed in the bottom tool bar to indicate that Launcher is processing the request. When Launcher has completed the operation, notification pop-up messages are displayed indicating the result of the requested operation.

    • Windows 10 is now supported.

“This new version of the Vortex platform highlights how we have significantly accelerated our new product development following our recent acquisition by ADLINK Technology,” said Angelo Corsaro, CTO, PrismTech.  “We look forward to delivering many new extremely innovative IoT products to our global customer base in the coming months.”

 

Extend your DDS systems to Web, Cloud and Mobile Environments with Vortex

If you are currently using DDS (Data Distribution Service), then extending your system to leverage the benefits of cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) has never been easier.

Compliant with the DDS standard and the DDSI interoperability protocol, PrismTech’s Vortex Intelligent Data Sharing Platform provides many capabilities not available from other vendors but required by next generation IoT systems.  These include cloud data sharing and WAN connectivity, support for Android devices and mobile environments, embedded device support, dynamic web browser application support and the ability to integrate DDS with a broad range of other IoT communication protocols and standards.

The Vortex platform includes:

  • Vortex Cloud extends the capabilities of a DDS system with support for data sharing over a Wide Area Network.
  • Vortex Café is the only “pure” Java DDS implementation specifically optimized for mobility and Android devices.
  • Vortex Lite provides real-time data sharing for severely resource-limited devices and sensors.
  • Vortex Insight is a browser-based, location-independent monitoring tool for DDS systems and systems-of-systems.
  • Vortex OpenSplice is a fully featured DDS implementation targeted for server-class (desktops, racks, etc.) platforms.

All of the Vortex technologies can work with and interoperate with existing DDSI compliant systems. If you would like to know more about how Vortex can be used to extend your system with new capabilities while protecting you previous DDS technology investments, >>> Find out more
