SUNNYVALE, Calif. Real-Time Innovations (RTI) and its Connext DDS has been chosen by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) as part of the IAI Operational Avionics Layer (OPAL) Application Framework, which serves as the infrastructure for networking connectivity, data sharing, and operative actions for air, land, and naval forces.
According to the RTI announcement of the selection, basing OPAL on the DDS standard aligns OPAL with the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Technical Standard, which defines an open avionics environment for all military airborne platform types.
Moreover, according to RTI, deploying an integrated modular avionics (IMA) architecture enables OPAL to efficiently introduce new applications and run on global avionics platforms while reducing operational costs, decreasing development complexity, and enabling faster time to market.
