BOSTON, 8 Dec. 2015. Engineers at Atech, part of Embraer Defense & Security in Brazil, sought a software platform for the Brazilian Air Traffic Control (ATC) training simulation system. They found their solution at PrismTech, a provider of software for distributed systems, and the company’s Vortex OpenSplice, which will serve as the data sharing layer for the PLATAO simulation system for training air traffic controllers.
For Atech, key features of Vortex OpenSplice include its support for automatic discovery, shared memory architecture, configurable Quality-of-Service (QoS) framework and portability of the platform, which together enable system-wide scalability and save valuable development time, particularly when integrating legacy systems. Atech is able to meet stringent development milestones with the use of PrismTech’s tooling and professional services, officials say.
“Vortex OpenSplice provides significant performance capabilities in our solution,” explains Fabio Cocchi S. Eiras, project director at Atech, a subsidiary of Embraer Defense & Security. “We were specifically interested in a data sharing platform based on the Data Distribution Service standard because of its proven performance, reliability and security, and Vortex delivers the right DDS-based solution for our requirements.”
Vortex OpenSplice is a key component of PrismTech’s Vortex Intelligent Data Sharing Platform, a suite of interoperable Internet of Things (IoT) enabling technologies based on the Object Management Group’s (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for real-time systems standard. Vortex provides secure, real-time data connectivity independent of network configuration (LAN or WAN, wired, wireless, mobile) or underlying platform technologies. It can be used by applications to enable seamless data sharing across server, embedded, web, mobile, fog, and cloud environments.
“The Atech award confirms the value of Vortex OpenSplice especially in the highly distributed and mission-critical systems found in aerospace and aviation,” says Spiros Motsenigos, vice president of U.S. sales at PrismTech. “Vortex is already in use in similar training simulation systems in Europe and the US. Thanks to the high performance of Vortex, PrismTech continues to serve as a trusted DDS innovator for a variety of simulation systems providers throughout the industry.”
