PrismTech’s Vortex DDS Showcased at DSEI 2017

Last week saw PrismTech showcase our Data Distribution Service (DDS) demo (see YouTube video above) whilst exhibiting amongst the giants of the world’s defense and aerospace market at DSEI 2017- many of whom are current PrismTech customers. Renowned as the world’s leading event bringing together the global defense and security sector DSEI did not disappoint, with the Excel Exhibition Centre hosting over 1,600 exhibitors and 34,000 visitors across the four days featuring a wide array of Defense and Aerospace applications.

PrismTech’s DDS demo stimulated great interest around the PrismTech booth, leading to many exciting discussions on how DDS could be applied to their own defense use cases. The demo highlighted the process of moving real-time data around network systems using Vortex DDS with land and sea examples.

Another highlight at DSEI was the announcement of Thales Australia selecting Vortex DDS as the data sharing platform for its Integral Computing System (ICS) which has been featured in major defense publications such as; Jane’s 360 and Defence Connect.

A Defense and Aerospace event of this scale is particularly relevant to PrismTech due the wide adoption of DDS in this industry- for example it is mandated in Vetronics systems with standards such as the Generic Vehicle Architecture (GVA).

The Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Consortium has added Vortex OpenSplice to its list of third-party tools for FACE applications.

PrismTech recently released its DDS Community Edition v6.7 that comes with a Free Open Source TSS aligned with the FACE Technical Standard that uses DDS as the underlying transport layer and is fully compatible and interoperable with the commercially supported Vortex OpenSplice V6.8

PrismTech’s TSS reference implementation provides a mapping-layer between the FACE Transport Services API and the standard OMG-DDS API. The new TSS implementation supports both C++ and Java Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and enables portable components to share and exchange data using DDS. PrismTech’s TSS is being made available under GNU lesser General Public License (LGPL) v3 and Apache V2.0 Open Source license terms.
