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

RTI and Curtiss-Wright Extend DDS to the Embedded Defense Market 
Collaboration Enables Digital Signal Processing (DSP) in the Harshest
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(R)Core(R)-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
With today's announcement, RTI and Curtiss-Wright extend DDS beyond
the high performance computing (HPC) market to embedded defense. RTI
Connext(TM) 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. Conne
xt 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(TM)) 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."
