CoreDX DDS is a small footprint implementation of the Data Distribution Standard (DDS) that is sponsored by the Object Management Group (OMG). DDS was designed specifically to meet the performance and quality of service requirements of real-time, embedded, time-critical, and mission-critical applications. Your research project will benefit from the opportunity to build upon a quality implementation of an important open standard middleware.

By participating in our Free IR&D License Program, your research projects will gain access to our state of the art middleware technologies. These technologies can help rapidly advance research goals in several ways:

  • A stable and proven middleware technology like CoreDX DDS can accelerate system development by abstracting the complex details of network data communication.
  • The unprecedented flexibility of the DDS Standard, with Dynamic Discovery and Type Safety, provide tools that are perfectly suited to system designs that evolve rapidly.
  • Your ability to commercialize research projects is magnified by a strong infrastructure foundation like CoreDX DDS.

Participant Requirements

Qualified research projects are welcome to participate in our IR&D License Program. Participating organizations must agree to use the software for research purposes only. The project must be an internally funded IR&D for pre-commercial and pre-award purposes. Examples include developing proof-of-concept demonstrations, prototypes, and proposal support.
