ARLINGTON, Va., 12 July 2006. PrismTech has announced its next generation Data Distribution Service (DDS) software, OpenSplice 2.0. OpenSplice 2.0 ensures the right information is available in the right place at the right time.

To ensure operational advantage, mission-critical systems require distributed, real-time information availability for applications ranging from small-scale embedded control systems to large-scale enterprise' information management systems.

Information stemming from multiple sensors in these systems must be distributed in a reliable and timely manner to multiple software components.

OpenSplice v2.0 is able to provide a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for demanding real-time net-centric systems; systems providers no longer have to design, build, and support in-house proprietary middleware.

OpenSplice v2.0 supports the Object Management Group's (OMG's) Data Distribution Service (DDS) specification, benefiting from 30+ man years of mission-critical systems development experience, and is based on proven software deployed in more than 15 armed services worldwide.

OpenSplice uses a shared-memory architecture, resulting in a low footprint, scalability, and optimal performance.

OpenSplice provides fault-tolerant availability of transient information. It is a unique capability of OpenSplice, allowing late joining applications to retain a correct state through an advanced, proven implementation of the DDS specification's transient QoS policy.

OpenSplice supports C, C++ and Java language bindings and can be integrated with minimum effort into existing heterogeneous and hybrid systems.

The OpenSplice run-time system offers a pluggable' service architecture. Specialized versions of services can be plugged-in.

OpenSplice conforms to the OMG's DDS open standard which encapsulates broad industry input in defining a coherent set of profiles that define QoS.
