Sun Java Real-Time System Selected for Space Surveillance


ITT Corporation selected Sun Microsystems' Sun Java Real-Time System 2.0 (Java RTS) and the Solaris 10 Operating System (OS) as the software development platform for its Eglin Control and Signal Processing Upgrade (CSPU) program.


The Eglin Space Surveillance Radar (FPS-85), which schedules and tracks catalogued space objects, is currently undergoing a modernization process to replace legacy mission-critical components built from one-of-a-kind equipment and custom software. The Sun Java Real-Time System will enable ITT to run the new solution using Java technology on Solaris 10 OS and standard hardware.


“Our comprehensive tests have proven that Sun Java RTS running on Solaris 10 OS meets the real time behavior and throughput requirements for Eglin Space Surveillance Radar,” said Matt Prechtel, ITT's software lead for the project. “We are looking forward to moving to a software platform based on the real-time specification for Java and are actively evaluating Java RTS for other projects."
