Rockwell Collins selects PrismTech's OpenSplice DDS to support its Tactical Air Control Party Modernization Program
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
PrismTech™, a global leader in standards-based, performance critical
middleware, today announced that its OpenSplice™ DDS product suite has
been selected by Rockwell Collins to support its latest Networked Joint
Fires (NJF) software powered by Rosetta Technology®.
Rockwell Collins' NJF software provides a modern, mission-centric
graphical user interface, updated information exchange capabilities and
integration with US and International defense forces in an
all-inclusive, digital machine-to-machine close air support and
surface-to-surface field artillery targeting solution, enabling
interoperability with command and control and aircraft systems such as
the Theater Battle Management Control System (TBMCS) and the Advanced
Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS). NJF controls and monitors
a host of tactical radios, modems, data links, navigation devices, laser
range finders, and video receivers, enabling the modern warfighter to
have a highly configurable actical application for vehicular and
dismounted strike and situational awareness mission operations.
