Aerospace & Defense Industries
Since its earliest days, OCI has been supporting the prime contractor community. As the industry has moved from defense specific hardware and software into the era of COTS based OO products the Primes have been looking to OCI to provide open architecture, standards based real-time systems consulting to their projects. The recent focus by DOD on using open source implementations of publicly developed software standards has enabled OCI to become very familiar with robust solution frameworks to very demanding problems.
OCI's real time open source products are widely used in many mission critical projects. Such projects encompass:
- early warning radar
- software radios
- missile defense simulation
- missile launch systems
- flight simulation
- shipboard defense
- major components of the Brigade Combat Team Modernization program.
OCI s development center includes a US Army approved separate space, set aside for sensitive projects, and staffed by US Citizens .
Airborne Systems: Provided mentoring, architectural and implementation support for the development of a scalable avionic system framework for use across multiple weapon systems using off-the-shelf real-time CORBA middleware, and real-time operating systems. Provided tools for debugging distributed applications and performing RACE condition analysis.
Radar Systems, Defensive and Offensive: Provided a real-time CORBA framework for ship-board and ground-based detection systems. Architecture included high-availability (HA), fault tolerance (FT), and load balancing characteristics.
Software Defined Radio Framework: This framework was designed to support multiple real-time operating systems and employed real-time CORBA, C++, and Java for management services. It was designed to fulfill the requirements of the next generation programmable radios for the military. The core framework is reusable across multiple waveforms and includes security features for encrypted message traffic.
Wireless PDA: This application provides infantry with the capability to send and receive information to battlefield management information systems using a secure, lightweight, rugged PDA employing a specialized communication protocol.
Satellite Management Services Framework: This C++ CORBA framework was developed to enable the client to manage the multiplicity of both new and legacy ground systems, in the more demanding environment of low earth orbit maneuverable satellite constellation. The distribution of information amongst systems had to have high bandwidth and low latency. Legacy systems required subtantial performance improvements (100X to 1000X). OCI also developed new components to satisfy new functional needs.
TACAN Software: OCI embedded systems developers provided code implementation reviews, and did subsequent porting and testing of on-board navigational software to a DSP. The development host and target had significant differences requiring careful management to esnure consistent behavior across platforms.
Legacy C Software Integration: OCI developed a code generator to enable the wrapping of legacy C applications so that they could be integrated into a real-time CORBA based weapon systems.
Submarine Combat Systems: OCI provided on-site mentoring and migration support with its open source products to help a client move their combat systems from a closed, proprietary architecture to an open extensible system.
