Aerospace and Defense Systems Applications

Standards-Based Software for Integrating High-Reliability, High-Performance Systems

Aerospace and defense applications require the highest level of reliable, real-time performance. Tactical communication systems often need to be installed or reconfigured within hours. Command data must be delivered with 100% accuracy. RTI technology and expertise have played a key role in many mission-critical aerospace and defense systems.

Award-winning RTI software and services are particularly well-suited to helping you meet network-centric integration requirements. RTI is the world's leading supplier of software, consulting services and training for the Object Management Group (OMG) Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) standard. The DDS standard's data-centric approach to integration aligns it with net-centric principles.

DDS is a mandated standard for publish-subscribe messaging by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Information Technology Standards Registry (DISR). DDS is included in:

  • Interoperable Open Architecture (IOA) efforts in defense procurement programs worldwide that focus on identifying best practices to promote an open competitive procurement process and the inherent interoperability of warfighter equipment.
  • The Transport Services Segment of the FACE™ Reference Architecture, which strives to allow portable avionics applications to be affordably integrated with disparate architectures and aviation platforms.
  • The UCS framework for defense software capabilities, where it promotes government acquisition flexibility for control segment subsystems and components.
  • Guidance for Joint Air Force, Navy and DISA Net-Centric Enterprise Solutions for Interoperability (NESI).

Frost & Sullivan named Real-Time Innovations as the recipient of the 2009 Technology Leadership of the Year Award in the North American unmanned aircraft system components market.

In critical flight system applications, Connext DDS Cert serves as a safety-certifiable communications infrastructure, with an available DO-178C Level A Certification Package, for the U.S. government's highest flight safety standard.
