"The work proposed under this Phase II effort comprises development of middleware components and tools targeted for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program, applicable on-going Progeny Systems Corp (PSC) Programs of Records (PoR), and opportunities resultingfrom Operating System (OS) vendor collaboration and new business within our customer sector. The commercialization campaign involves collaboration with JSF OS providers and coordination with the JSF team.Comprehensive platforms such as JSF have a system-of-systems infrastructure composed of varying middleware functional and performance requirements. For this reason a Middleware Framework made up of middleware component and tool products is proposed forJSF and other targeted applications. The framework design itself is planned to be open, extensible and scalable to allow code reuse, support future capabilities, and support varying hardware and communication configurations.The products planned to be developed throughout the course of the proposed Phase II effort are middleware components resulting from working with Lockheed Martin to develop middleware components for the ICP. These components comprise an MPI Library,Canonical Layer, a Messaging Instrumentation Suite, and a Trust Framework.BENEFITS: Distributed Real-time Embedded (DRE) systems are increasingly being used in mission-critical domains such as online financial trading, distributed process control, submarine information
