SAN DIEGO, 8 April 2010. Atego--an independent supplier of industrial-grade, collaborative development tools for engineering complex, mission- and safety-critical architectures, systems, software and hardware--has announced the deployment of its Aonix PERC Virtual Machine technology in support of Lockheed Martin's Java language components used in the Aegis Open Architecture System during recent combat tests. The guided missile cruiser USS Bunker Hill (CG 52), modernized with the Aegis Weapon System, completed an operational trial of its full combat system.

Deployed in thousands of fielded systems in the military/aerospace, telecommunications, transportation, and industrial control markets, Aonix PERC Ultra is used by Lockheed Martin in its Aegis Weapon System, providing deterministic, real-time performance, and high-productivity development. Aonix PERC Ultra also provides instrumentation and VM management tools to support the mission-critical, real-time requirements of the Aegis Weapon System.

James B. Gambrell, executive chairman at Atego, says: "As a supplier to mission- and safety-critical system developers, we understand that building large, complex and operationally intensive systems is incredibly demanding, and Atego is pleased to be part of this winning team."

The Aegis Weapon System is the premier naval defense system and the sea-based element of the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense System. Its precision SPY-1 radar and integrated command and control system guides the interceptor and uplinks target track information to the missile for terminal homing. Its ability to detect, track, and engage targets ranging from sea-skimming cruise missiles to ballistic missiles in space is proven.

"The combat readiness trials assert rigorous stress on the systems they test," says Jim Sheridan, Lockheed Martin's director, Aegis U.S, Navy Programs. "We appreciate Atego's technical team's dependability, responsiveness and support during our development and testing cycle."
