Apr 13, 2010 - 00:00 AM


“Rockwell Collins’ Venue CMS is a great example of the flexibility and applicability of Java™ to many application types,” commented James B. Gambrell, Executive Chairman at Atego. “Aonix PERC Ultra is deployed in weapons systems, network infrastructure product, transportation systems and now, world-class in-flight entertainment. We’re very pleased to be part of this exciting new product delivery.”

Already deployed in hundreds of thousands of systems in the military/aerospace, telecommunications, transportation and industrial control markets, Aonix PERC Ultra is used by Rockwell Collins in its Venue cabin management system, providing deterministic, real-time performance and high productivity development. Venue combines home theatre quality XM Radio, hi-def Blu-Ray™ DVD and integrated real-time flight status information, together with cabin environmental cooling and heating features.

To support its real-time response requirements, Rockwell Collins relies on Aonix PERC Ultra’s reliability and predictability in performance envelopes supporting millisecond latencies. Aonix PERC Ultra’s real-time Java capabilities can guarantee the predictability and reliability of the system’s operation even within multi-role applications such as Venue. Additionally, Atego supported Rockwell Collins’ project with updated Java interfaces to OpenGL for 2D and 3D graphics through a Java OpenGL (JOGL) wrapper to enable access to OpenGL libraries from within a Java context.
