Tampa Bay, 19 June 2007.Aonix, a provider of solutions for mission-critical applications development, announced a Memorandum of Understanding has been reached with Fujitsu Limited and NTK Aviation America for mutual cooperation in providing products, services, and support for applications related to real-time Java in Japan. On the basis of this relationship, Fujitsu is considering the application of Aonix PERC technology to future airborne computer systems.
Aonix PERC technology provides predictable, real-time embedded virtual machine technology used by Java developers. PERC is chosen for systems requiring high reliability and elasticity, such as Lockheed Martin Aegis destroyer upgrade, Future Combat Systems, Boeing J-UCAS unmanned aerial vehicle, and more.
Fujitsu is the only company in Japan providing a total airborne computer solution that contains not only computer hardware, but also a software development environment and operating system.
NTK Aviation America Inc., based in Los Angeles, is a U.S. subsidiary of NTK International Corporation, which began dealing with the Japan Defense Agency and Japanese defense industry as a qualified trading company. NTK Aviation America will coordinate the group activities as a facilitator and maximize the strength of this Fujitsu-Aonix partnership arrangement.
PERC Ultra and PERC Pico technology is virtual machine technology for mission-critical applications. The PERC Ultra virtual machine offers rich J2SE-based capabilities, and predictable garbage collection, while PERC Pico provides the low-level access and small latencies that are often required for "close to the silicon" applications.
