Managers at Raytheon Company-the prime mission systems equipment integrator for the U.S. Navy’s DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class destroyer program, formerly the DD(X) destroyer program-sought a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) middleware solution for the future warship.
For development and deployment in the next-generation multi-mission destroyer, they turned to PrismTech of Burlington, Mass., and its OpenFusion RTOrb Java Edition CORBA middleware. PrismTech’s OpenFusion RTOrb Java Edition CORBA middleware is a COTS-based solution for integrating diverse distributed systems.
Raytheon of Waltham, Mass., is integrating OpenFusion RTOrb Java Edition in its Total Ship Computing Environment Infrastructure (TSCEI), a suite of open architecture hardware, operating system, middleware, and infrastructure services that forms the backbone of the Navy’s Total Ship Computing Environment on which DDG 1000 application software programs run.
“DDG 1000 uses a modular architecture that is based on open standards,” says Ed Geisler, vice president and DDG 1000 program manager for Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems.
