Vortex DDS Supports Teledyne Brown Engineering on the Objective Simulation Framework.
The Vortex DDS data sharing software will be incorporated in the Objective Simulation Framework (OSF) which is being developed by Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc. for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Missile Defense Agency (MDA).
Teledyne Brown Engineering is the Prime Contractor for the development, implementation and maintenance of the OSF, the backbone of the next-generation missile defense hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) and digital modeling and simulation architecture. Specifically, the OSF is a single-inclusive, modular, scalable, reconfigurable, and composable framework for integrating multiple-instanced systems and system-level models and simulations (M&S), with each instance composed and executed independently or in an integrated and interoperable manner.
The OSF will provide the MDA with a flexible M&S architecture configurable to support all applications, including Performance Assessment (PA), Ground Test (GT), Element Integration (EI), Exercises (EX), Training (TR), Wargames (WG), and Concept Analysis (CA).
Vortex DDS is the leading (commercial and Open Source) implementation of the Object Management Group's (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard. Vortex DDS has been designed to optimally address the real-time information distribution and management challenges posed by high performance real-time simulations. It sets new levels of performance, robustness, scalability, fault-tolerance, portability (platform support) and interoperability for standard’s based middleware.
Vortex DDS enables the OSF to easily share data in real-time between any combination of Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) elements in a system and in doing so helps users to realize the savings and performance benefits that can be achieved by using the framework.
