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

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(TM) 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
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.
