MT Aerospace Put Their Faith In Linux-Based Collax Business Server

The European space program is pinning its hopes on the Ariane 5. In order for the Ariane 5 to counter the pull of earth’s gravity and be propelled into space, additional solid propellant rockets – known as boosters – will be required. These power boosters are manufactured by MT Aerospace AG, based in Augsburg in Bavaria. With a workforce of 500, MT Aerospace puts its faith in a highperformance appliance, the Collax Business Server (CBS), when it comes to IT security. As well as offering a VPN, proxy server and mail gateway, the CBS includes spam filters and anti-virus scanners to protect the space pioneer’s IT infrastructure from Internet attacks. “We were looking for an out-of-the-box security solution,” said Manfred Waldukat, network administrator with MT Aerospace. “What impressed us about Collax was that the server solutio...

Implementing a Highly Distributed, Real-time Data-critical SOA Application

SOA implementations are increasingly reliant on streams of data that are time-critical, reliably delivered and sourced from mixed infrastructures in a highly distributed environment. Data formats, delivery mechanisms, fault tolerance capabilities and stateful semantics embedded in data are often inadequately considered when architecting and implementing large scale real-time SOA applications. This talk will introduce several real-time data-centric technologies that specifically address the challenges of wide-scale, real-time data distribution, as well as how these technologies seamlessly integrate into existing SOA frameworks. Examples will be drawn from military and aerospace applications that are already seeing success with real-time, highly distributed SOA applications.

Frost & Sullivan Honours TTTech Computertechnik AG for Technology Innovation

LONDON, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of its innovative communication databus - the Time-Triggered Protocol (TTP(R)) - for aircraft, Austria-based TTTech Computertechnik AG has been bestowed the 2005 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award for aerospace and defence communications technologies. With its sophisticated architecture, TTP has the potential to reduce airline manufacturing and operating outlays and ultimately reduce the cost of air travel. At present, the aerospace industry is facing pressures to reduce costs while increasing aircraft capability and features. At the same time, as aircraft manufacturers increasingly focus on integrating various electro-mechanical systems in aircraft and developing new functionality, system complexity is poised to rise, driving the need for a robust databus. "TTP is a breakthrough databus with modular architec... (more)
