PrismTech and NEXTEL Aerospace Defense and Security (Nads) Partner to Simplify the Integration of Data Distribution Service (DDS) and High Level Architecture (HLA)

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PrismTech™, a global leader in standards-based, performance-critical middleware and Nextel Aerospace Defense and Security (Nads), a leader in high performance solutions for distributed simulation and training systems, today announced a technology partnership to extend the capabilities and support of OpenSplice™ DDS for High Level Architecture (HLA) based Simulations.

“This partnership will bring to the market exciting new applications for simulations in DDS compliant systems.”

The HLA is defined under the IEEE Standard 1516 and is a general purpose architecture for distributed computer simulation systems. Using HLA, computer simulations can interact (communicate data and synchronize actions) with other computer simulations regardless of the computing platform.

The PrismTech and Nads partnership is intended to address two key emerging trends in Defense and Aerospace applications. Firstly, the applicability of HLA for certain kinds of simulations is currently being limited by the performance delivered by current HLA core implementations. Secondly, an increasingly large class of mission-critical systems, based on the Object Management Group™’s (OMG™) Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) standard, are required to interoperate with simulators developed using the IEEE HLA standard.

PrismTech’s OpenSplice DDS product suite is the most advanced, complete, and widely used (commercial and open source), implementation of the DDS standard.

The PrismTech and Nads partnership will deliver to the market a number of OpenSplice DDS extensions, which (1) allow seamless interoperability between HLA and DDS and (2) provide existing HLA-based simulations with the ability to transparently use a high performance transport such as OpenSplice DDS.

These extensions are based on SimWare®, a real-time high-performance Simulation framework, fully compliant with HLA and DDS standards. SimWare® is based on OpenSplice DDS for its DDS compliance.

“OpenSplice DDS gives us the best and most capable DDS platform for SimWare based distributed simulation solutions, which goes far beyond the limits of HLA actual performance,” said Jose-Maria Lopez-Rodriguez, VP Business Development, Nads. “This partnership will bring to the market exciting new applications for simulations in DDS compliant systems.”

“I’m very excited about the partnership with Nads,” said Angelo Corsaro, PhD, OpenSplice DDS CTO, PrismTech. “It is a very natural and logical extension for OpenSplice DDS to deliver real benefits to the distributed simulation systems market.”

The new extensions of OpenSplice DDS for Simulation, powered by SimWare, will be released to the general public during next Quarter 2.
