RTI Connext is peer-to-peer middleware that fits the requirements of high-performance vehicle monitoring and radar tracking systems. Connext lets you fine-tune data streams for your network, and trade off latency and throughput – all through configuration. So, you can get the performance and scalability that you need without changing your source. This allows you to send updates about many vehicles, and to tune your system for sending those updates at very high rates.
This use case applies if you need to distribute vehicle location or radar track data to:
- Air traffic control systems
- Situational awareness systems
- Nextgen air traffic management systems
- Warning systems
- Self-defense systems
- Area defense systems
- Battlefield awareness
- Logging systems
- Collision avoidance systems
- Emergency vehicle tracking systems
- Rail tracking systems
- Bus and transport applications
The following sections show coding examples of how Connext can be used in applications that send flight data. However, the patterns we examine here are not just specific to air traffic control systems – an emergency vehicle tracking system has some of the same basic requirements as an air traffic control system. The key to each of these systems is that they need to represent many unique vehicles, and send updates about them frequently.
