InterCOM DDS uses an open standard protocol to effectively network inputs from a wide range of sensors and controllers on a complex platform like the armored fighting vehicle pictured here.
InterCOM DDS has been optimized for defense and security applications, and is interoperable with any OMG-compliant DDS application. DDS is an open standard maintained by the Object Management Group (OMG) consortium. Kongsberg Geospatial is a contributing member of the OMG consortium.
The InterCOM DDS API is available in multiple languages and platforms, and includes the following capabilities:
Through our participation in Object Management Group DDS standards groups, Kongsberg Geospatial is able to provide a data distribution service that can connect with any application or device that supports the OMG RTPS protocol. It provides a highly reliable publish and subscribe backbone to optimize complex systems and maximize available network resources.
With more than 15 years of deployment in some of the most demanding defense and military applications, InterCOM DDS has been proven to be reliable, stable and efficient while providing the high performance that complex defense and security projects demand.
Quality of Service (QoS) policies are used to prioritize data flows and manage system performance. You can use policies to prioritize data delivery and error handling to optimize system resource usage.
Intra-node communication via shared memory is extremely fast and further reduces memory use. InterCOM DDS provides several mechanisms for filtering data by both the publisher and subscriber. QoS filtering helps the system adapt to changes, and integrates and blends secure, high-speed, lossy and unreliable links into one system.
Policies can be divided into custom categories for refined control. The categories can include:
High Performance Engine
Publish and Subscribe
