As machines and devices are connected to create intelligent systems, innovative solutions are emerging that are transforming our world in every market. Data-centric connectivity is critical to the success of these high performance, intelligent systems and Connext, based on the DDS standard, is ushering in the Age of Autonomy in these important markets.
Communications Systems Applications
Space exploration and communication requires datalinks across millions of miles of space. Whether it be from Earth to Mars or from the International Space Station to Earth, long-distance object control relies upon space links that are low-bandwidth, high-delay and lossy. NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) rely upon Connext for remote operations, many miles from the control center.
Rapid changes are coming to the modern electric grid. RTI Connext enables utilities to navigate the complex world of protecting in-place investment while modernizing, securing and preparing for the future.
Intelligent Connectivity for Oil and Gas
Connected smart machines are disrupting Oil and Gas at an unprecedented rate. RTI’s connectivity framework enables equipment and systems to seamlessly connect in real time, providing automation and ensuring secure, safe and efficient operations.
Large Telescope Systems
A new generation of very large telescopes are ushering in important scientific discoveries through clear views into outer space. These massive instruments require adaptive optics technology to correct for the effects of the Earth’s atmosphere on observations. Distortions must be detected and corrected rapidly, with mirror adjustments of upwards of thousands of times per second. One of the world’s foremost research institutions uses RTI Connext DDS in the lab and in real-world deployments to handle this real-time information flow, reliably and at scale.
Smart Machine Applications
Smart machine capabilities are increasing the autonomy and operational efficiency of traditional manufacturing, mining, SCADA, and Oil and Gas systems. These smart machines target outdated industrial systems. Connext benefits include easier integration of large systems, more secure and distributed SCADA, and better optimization with cloud-based analysis and real-time feedback to the operational system.Learn more »
Training and Simulation
Training for today’s military threats requires simulated environments that can be assembled and reconfigured in an agile, ad-hoc manner from ready-made components. RTI Connext® is the platform that brings distributed simulations together in a secure, high-performance, scalable environment. Based on the OMG® Data Distribution Service™ (DDS) standard, it has the necessary security and interoperability requirements for cross-vendor, cross-branch and cross-ally simulation of the evolving battlefield.
RTI enables the transportation industry to evolve aging and inefficient infrastructures. Future transportation – from smart highways to air traffic control to high-speed rail – relies on intelligent, connected systems.
Outer Space Human-to-Robot Communication
NASA relies on RTI Connext because of its inherent tolerance of time delay and loss of signal that occur with signals sent across the vast distances separating the space station, satellites and land-based devices.
Human Robot Interaction Laboratory
ESA uses Connext for communication and video to demonstrate long- distance object control from aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
Construction and Mining Analytics
With Connext, Komatsu can manage and analyze equipment data in real-time, delivering intelligent capabilities and predictive maintenance.
Training and Simulation
Connext provided the software for real-time, low-latency data interchange to manage the many simulation components working concurrently.
High-speed Autonomous Race
RTI Connext provides race teams with rapid design-test iteration capabilities and is the only technology that can integrate AUTOSAR, ROS 2 and the advanced simulation and modeling capabilities from Ansys – at peak performance and reliability.
Adaptive Optics Technology
One of the world’s foremost research institutions uses RTI Connext in the lab and in real-world deployments in very large telescopes to handle real-time information flow and reliably, at scale.
Precision in Robotic Transport
RTI Connext manages data flows for the robots in motion reducing demands on customer networks, and enabling seamless integration with ERP and other software systems.
The Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery (MIRS) system at DLR coordinates three robots to perform delicate heart surgery. The system closes a distributed loop between the robots and the remote surgeon's control at 3kHz.
OpenROV leverages Connext to solve complex connectivity challenges in their drones while underwater in one of the world’s harshest and most unpredictable environments.
Advance Precision Science
Connext coordinates precise control and measurement for the 39-meter Extremely Large Telescope, under construction - the world’s largest optical telescope.
The CMU DARPA SubT Challenge team is using Connext as the connectivity framework to make coordinated, time-critical decisions in uncertain underground environments.
