PrismTech's OpenSplice DDS is a high-performance, real-time, data-centric publish/subscribe middleware platform. It combines data-centric and real-time publish/subscribe capabilities to provide next-generation mission and business critical applications with the ideal platform for achieving high-performance data distribution and management.

OpenSplice DDS complies with the full profile of the "OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems v1.2 Specification," as it provides a complete implementation of both the "Data Centric Publish/Subscribe" (DCPS) Layer, and of the "Data Local Reconstruction Layer" (DLRL) Layer.

PrismTech has added security capability to OpenSplice DDS and fueling standardization work, co-authoring the UML profile for DDS specification as well as chairing the OMG DDS Special Interest Group.

Thales' Naval in The Netherlands, one of the original co-authors of the DDS specification, initially signed a strategic alliance with PrismTech in July 2006 for mission systems' software infrastructure, middleware, tools, and related services.
