Product Description
RTI Data Distribution Service is a fully standards-compliant integration platform for real-time systems. It allows heterogeneous real-time applications to communicate with each other and with legacy and enterprise applications.

With RTI Data Distribution Service, real-time applications communicate using the publish/subscribe model. Applications simply publish the data the produce (for example, sensor data or commands) and subscribe to the data they consume. Publishers and subscribers are automatically discovered and connected and run-time. Individual applications do not require any knowledge of each other.

RTI Data Distribution Service enables fast and flexible integration. It insulates applications from changes made to other applications and to their deployment environment. New capabilities and technology can be introduced without requiring changes to already developed, certified and deployed applications. It also promotes reuse. It decouples integration logic from application logic and exposes applications using standard and well-defined interfaces.

An Open Architecture solution, RTI Data Distribution Service complies with the Object Management Group (OMG) Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) application programming interface and Real-Time Publish-Subscribe (RTPS) wire interoperability protocol. It is the world’s most widely used and widely deployed DDS implementation. It also allows easy integration of real-time applications with Web, enterprise and legacy applications via Java Message Service (JMS), Web services, relational databases and custom interfaces, such as to legacy data links.

A small footprint Safety-Critical Edition is available for certification to high-assurance standards such as DO-178B.
