White Papers

  • Simplifying Realtime Information Integration in Industrial Internet of Things Control Systems This whitepaper presents our experience of supporting customers developing systems across a range of IIoT application domains and highlights how Vortex is being deployed and used to meet the real-time data sharing and integration challenges of building the next generation of large scale industrial management systems.
  • Enable Your Data Distribution Service System for the Internet of Things with Vortex If you use the Data Distribution Service (DDS) within your applications then extending your system to leverage the benefits of cloud computing and Internet technologies has never been easier. Vortex enables both new and legacy systems with powerful new features such as cloud connectivity, mobile device support and interoperability between DDS subsystems and applications using other communication protocols.
  • Indian Defence and Aerospace Briefing To support the Indian Aerospace and Defence market, we have developed a successful partnership with RTTS (Real-time TechSolutions), an Indian company specialising in systems integration to defence customers. RTSS has developed its engineering, consulting and support team to a high level of Data Distribution Service (DDS) expertise, enabling defence projects in India to benefit from first line support in their own time zone.
  • Vortex at the Edge Whitepaper The whitepaper details the benefits of Vortex for Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) Gateways and Fog Nodes.  Where there is a requirement to manage high volume, high velocity data, at the network edge, Vortex can be used to enable efficient, low-latency, reliable, real-time device-to-device data sharing between Fog nodes.
  • DDS at the Tactical Edge Defense Whitepaper The whitepaper details how the Data Distribution Service (DDS) can enable Tactical Edge Networks for the Next Generation of Intelligent, Mobile and Autonomous Military Systems. The whitepaper describes how speedier and optimal battlefield and defense decision making can be made using new fog computing, edge computing and tactical cloudlet technologies.
  • Data Connectivity Driving Innovation in Automation Discover how intelligent data sharing can innovate processes and generate increased value for your business. Understand how Vortex data connectivity enables machine intelligence in the latest manufacturing automation and robotics use cases.
  • Real Time Data Connectivity Brings Undersea Technology to the Next Level Deep sea underwater operations is one of the most challenging environments demanding safe yet cost effective solutions. Data connectivity plays a key role in addressing this challenge. Discover how Vortex enables real-time data-sharing for DexROV's Remotely Operated Vehicles advanced communication and control.
  • A Comparison of Simulation and Operational Architectures This whitepaper presents a comparison between simulation and operational architectures. Presented at the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) 2012 Fall Simulation Interoperability Workshop in Orlando, FL, USA. The paper is co-authored with Thales and NADS.
  • Vortex OpenSplice in Modeling and Simulation This whitepaper describes how Vortex OpenSplice Data Distribution Service (DDS) implementation is ideally suited for scalable, high performance, real-time data sharing in next generation Modeling and Simulation systems.
  • DDS in Medical Devices and Healthcare Whitepaper This whitepaper describes how DDS is being used for scalable, real-time data sharing between Medical Devices in the next generation of connected Healthcare Systems.
  • Vortex Intelligent Data Sharing Whitepaper This whitepaper provides a technical overview of Vortex, a new Intelligent Data Sharing Platform for Business-Critical Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
  • Internet of Things and Industrial Internet Messaging Technologies Comparison Whitepaper This white paper provides a comparison of the messaging and protocol technologies DDS, AMQP, MQTT, JMS, REST, CoAP and XMPP and their suitability for use in the next generation of Industrial Internet and Internet of Things applications.
  • Data Distribution Service System of Systems Whitepaper This whitepaper presents an in-depth introduction to the Data Distribution Service (DDS). It then examines the unique challenges faced by System of Systems (SOSs) due to their scale, heterogeneity, extensibility, and evolvability requirements. The whitepaper then presents a set of guidelines on how to apply DDS technologies to architect scalable and efficient SoSs.
  • Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems Introduction Whitepaper This introductory Whitepaper focuses on what Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) is, why it represents an important technology you should learn about, and how it is being used today. it will also allow you to get started coding your first DDS Application.
  • The Present and Future of Data Distribution Service (DDS) Whitepaper This whitepaper examines the present and future of the Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) standard. It details Pre-2010 standards such as DDSI/RTPS, UML4DDS, 2010 standards such as Extensible and Dynamic Topic Types, ISO C++ DDS PSM and Java 5 PSM, and future DDS standards such as Web-Enabled DDS and Ultra Large-Scale DDSi/RTPS (ULS-DDSI).
