Research Institution

The Transport Services Segment (TSS) provides integral capabilities that support system integration, software reuse, and fast fielding. Current implementations of the TSS only cover the basic features from the standard. Tool support and the overall maturity of the TSS solutions are limited. Our vision of the TSS solution is a Transport Services Development Kit (TSDK) that is open and extendible. Due to the extendable nature of the solution and the support for different roles in TSS development the TSDK will provide an open systems path to integration of FACE™ UoCs in a platform system. The availability of Government owned TSS solution will remove the barrier for entry for FACE™ UoC developers who will not have to rely on vendor-locked TSS implementations. The TSDK, with configurable TSS component libraries and tool infrastructure, will be a great addition to the FACE™ library, will help further FACE™ adoption in industry, and continue to highlight the DoD support for open system architectures. Lessons learned during development and conformance will be provided to the FACE™ consortium to support enhancements and adoption of the standard.
