Raytheon Company Integrated Defense Systems engineers in Tewksbury, Mass., required a solution to power the shipboard computing environment aboard the DDG 1000 Zumwalt Class Destroyer. They settled on the RTI Data Distribution Service from Real-Time Innovations (RTI) in Santa Clara, Calif.
TSCEI is an open architecture platform for software application development for the U.S. Navy DDG 1000 Zumwalt Class Destroyer program. TSCEI includes standardized hardware, an operating system, middleware, and infrastructure services.
The RTI Data Distribution Service combines with Raytheon’s Total Ship Computing Environment Infrastructure (TSCEI) Release 4.0 to deliver reliable, real-time data distribution throughout the entire shipboard network. RTI Data Distribution Service, furnishing the data distribution layer of TSCEI, enables high-throughput, low-latency messaging between shipboard applications. RTI Data Distribution Service enables applications to reliably share data and coordinate defenses.
“The selection of RTI came through a process which uses formal evaluation criteria and a source selection board to ensure that the Navy gets the best value,” Raytheon DDG 1000 System Software Development director Bob Martin notes. “This is an emerging product market and it was determined that the offering from RTI, a small privately held company, provides the best value to the Navy.”
