HOUSTON, 15 March 2011. Knowledge Reservoir has formed a Real-Time Systems (RTS) division to provide real-time system implementation to the aerospace industry. Knowledge Reservoir provides services to develop knowledge management-based situational awareness tools and to integrate, test, operate, and maintain delivered real-time systems to client operations facilities. The company’s RTS division provides engineering services along with integrated systems for real-time command and control and events-based surveillance solutions.
Cost sensitivities and project requirements have driven the need to rapidly develop and deploy real-time command and control systems in the aerospace industry that can be used in multi-project roles, describes a company representative. Knowledge Reservoir employs commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies and tools to support the implementation of complex real-time systems to reduce operational and development costs and provide flexibility for expansion and future upgrades by leveraging commercial standards.
Leading the RTS initiative at Knowledge Reservoir is Marv LeBlanc, an expert in systems engineering, program management, and corporate organizational development. Immediately prior to joining Knowledge Reservoir, LeBlanc was vice president, systems engineering and CTO of Cimarron Software Services Inc., a provider of real-time command and control system integration, playing a vital part in the design and implementation of NASA’s Mission Control facilities for the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station. LeBlanc was also formerly chief of systems engineering, mission control, with NASA.
“The deployment of real-time systems is critical to the successful management of multiple high technology industry sectors,” Dr. Ivor R. Ellul, CEO of Knowledge Reservoir, comments. “At Knowledge Reservoir, we leverage our engineering subject matter expertise with leading edge systems engineering processes in the design and implementation of situational awareness solutions. With our technical alliance partners, we are very excited to be leading this initiative in support of the industry’s evolving needs.”
