RTI Teams with Northrop Grumman to Provide Standard Interface to Diverse U.S. Air Force and Navy Tactical Data Link Systems
SAN JOSE, CA–December 3, 2007– Real-Time Innovations (RTI), The Real-Time Middleware Experts, announced today its collaboration with Northrop Grumman Corporation to develop a Data Distribution Service (DDS)-compliant interface to the Common Link Integration Processing (CLIP) system. CLIP enables the exchange of information between Air Force and Navy platforms that natively support incompatible tactical data links (TDLs). CLIP also provides TDL processing for platforms that do not currently have a data link by bridging the legacy host mission computers software to the new TDL radio/terminal. DDS provides a standards-complaint mechanism for accessing data using commercial off-the-shelf DDS software, which is already broadly used within defense systems.
