Real-Time Innovations has announced that the middleware provided by RTI was selected by a U.S. Navy's Lockheed Martin team to provide the real-time data-distribution infrastructure for Aegis Open Architecture (AOA), the next generation of the Aegis Weapon System. AOA will be deployed by the U.S. Navy beginning in 2008.

AOA will use RTI Data Distribution Service (formerly NDDS) for communication between different Aegis subsystems, including radar, weapons, displays, and command and control. The AOA team selected RTI after a nine-month evaluation of commercial implementations of the Object Management Group's (OMG's) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard.

Factors considered in this extensive evaluation included standards compliance, performance, lifecycle costs and customer support.

"AOA will modernize the Navy's surface force and enable rapid insertion of future technology upgrades," said Orlando Carvalho, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin's Surface-Sea Based Missile Defense (SBMD) Systems business. "RTI's Data Distribution Service supports this mission through its open-standards design and ability to insulate each subsystem from changes in adjacent subsystems."

"RTI is honored to be a partner in AOA," commented Stan Schneider, chief executive officer of RTI. "We cultivated the DDS standard and developed RTI Data Distribution Service specifically to support mission-critical requirements such as those of the Aegis Weapon System. Our concentrated efforts help meet the need to share time-critical and mission-critical data across a highly-distributed system while maximizing future scalability and flexibility."
