Specialist in edge computing, ADLINK Technology has announced support for both C++ and Java in its Vortex Data Distribution Service (DDS) product. Proven to provide reliable, real-time data sharing for mission critical systems, it has passed all the required tests for conformance certification to Edition 2.1.1 of the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Technical Standard.
ADLINK’s JAVA Application Programming Interfaces (API) TSS product is reportedly already being used by a Major aerospace manufacturer, reducing their time, cost and risk of avionics systems integration.
The FACE approach is a government-, industry-, academia-developed open software standard and business strategy. Providing a supplier-independent, standardized environment, it enables commercial software components to be migrated rapidly across global avionic systems that conform to the FACE Standard.
ADLINK’s Vortex DDS plays a role in many mission-critical aerospace and defense systems globally, ranging from radar processors to simulation and next-generation, network-centric systems. The standards-based, open architecture software provides efficient, secure and interoperable real-time device, edge and cloud data sharing, ensuring that the right information is delivered to the right place, at the right time.
“We’re already actively engaged on a major aerospace and defense project that is a United States DoD Program of Record; this marks a significant milestone for ADLINK,” said Mike Roberts, Solutions Architect at ADLINK. “Because of the maturity of our software and experience in the aerospace and defense sector, we were able to exactly match the Vortex DDS JAVA and C++ TSS to the FACE APIs that are included in the FACE Technical Standard Edition 2.1.1, which helps to minimize risk associated with integration.”
ADLINK will make a formal announcement of the completion of the FACE Certification process to the FACE Consortium at The Open Group FACE Consortium Member Meeting in St. Pete Beach, FL, on April 23rd to 25th. During AeroDef Manufacturing, which runs from April 30th to May 1st in Long Beach, California, ADLINK will demonstrate its Vortex DDS TSS for avionics system.
