RTI to Showcase Open Architecture Messaging Software at AUVSI Unmanned Systems 2013

RTI will provide live demonstrations of its Connext™ DDS (Data Distribution Service) software.

SUNNYVALE, CA - Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the real-time infrastructure software company, today announced its participation at AUVSI Unmanned Systems 2013, the world's largest unmanned robotics symposium and exhibition, held on August 12-15, 2013 in Washington, D.C.


During the exposition, RTI will provide live demonstrations of its Connext™ DDS (Data Distribution Service) software. Connext DDS is widely used to develop and integrate Open Architecture autonomous systems, including those based on the UAV Control Segment (UCS) architecture and Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE). The demonstration includes a small-footprint DDS implementation for resource-constrained devices and applications that require certification to stringent safety standards such as DO-178C Level A.

RTI Chief Applications Engineer, Gordon Hunt, will also be presenting at the event. In his talk, titled "Interoperable Architecture as a Foundation for Unmanned Vehicle Teaming," Gordon Hunt will take a closer look at key advances in system and system-of-systems architecture theory and practice. The presentation will consider how common data architecture enables an interoperable and dynamic implementation of teaming. Attendees will learn the definition of interoperable data architecture, current industry initiatives toward interoperable architectures, how to build in semantics for auto-discovery of AV capability and how to create a context-based (semantic) architecture.

To learn more about the benefits of Open Architecture Messaging Software, attendees can visit the RTI AUVSI Unmanned Systems' booth #3353.
