Research Institution
The Software Communications Architecture (SCA) builds upon the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA), a powerful middleware standard that enables the development of platform-independent, dynamically loadable object-oriented software components. However, the current SCA specification is not amenable to realization on highly resource constrained, small form factor, battery-powered platforms. We propose a low-overhead, high performance implementation of the SCA Core Framework, the set of interfaces used directly by SCA-compliant applications, that requires only slight restrictions on the full SCA functionality which are not likely to be relevant to the handheld and manpack JTRS platforms targeted for this variant of the core framework.
