RTI FACE TSS Implementation
RTI's TSS technology is built on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard developed by the Object Management Group (OMG). Serving as the communication abstraction layer in the FACE Technical Standard architecture, the TSS provides a standard interface between portable applications, common services and platform-specific services, powering easy system integration while maximizing deployment flexibility.The RTI FACE TSS Implementation makes it easy for FACE Technical Standard component developers and systems integrators to take advantage of the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard. The RTI TSS implementation provides a thin software layer that maps the FACE Transport Services (TS) Application Programming Interface (API) to the DDS API supported by RTI Connext® DDS products.The RTI TSS Implementation provides loose coupling between portable components. This minimizes integration, maintenance and upgrade costs. FACE Technical Standard connections are mapped to DDS publish/subscribe topics. Components communicate by simply publishing the data they produce and subscribing to the data they consume. They require no knowledge of other components. DDS automatically handles discovery and message routing. The implementation runs over any Connext DDS product. It also supports the FACE Technical Standard Safety Profile when used with Connext DDS Micro and Connext DDS Cert. Since Connext DDS Cert is certifiable to DO-178C Design Assurance Level (DAL) A, the RTI TSS provides a fast and low-risk solution for safety-critical systems.
Real-Time Innovations (RTI) is the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company. The RTI Connext® Databus is a software framework that shares information in real time, making applications work together as one, integrated system. It connects across field, fog and cloud.

TES-SAVi and CES developed TESeract, and has been working with CES since 2014. TES-SAVi's TESseract was first introduced and demonstrated at the FACE Army TIM 2016.
TESseract (our "FACE-Box") a scalable, off-the-shelf solution for rugged, flight capable UAS computers featuring the VITA 74 Small Form Factor (VNX) architecture and technologies. TES-SAVi's TESseract, loaded with FACE architecture libraries, is prepared to support a wide-range of Military avionics. No other product provides all of these features, nothing comes close.
TESseract is designed to work standalone or within a triple redundant system, this processing center gives the user two QorIQ PowerPC based processors, a next generation communications card, and a host of avionics I/O; all in a package 1/3rd the weight and size of today’s standard 3U-VPX chassis. Wide-range input power supplies, a fully sealed conduction cooled chassis, and MIL-STD-810G based environmentals provide a rugged platform for embedded processing, able to operate in the most extreme UAS environments. Extensive use of optical interfaces ensures EMI protection of high-speed communications buses, as well as PCIe based shared memory rings between multiple VNX chassis. Through the selection of configurable I/O and MiniPCIe connection points, the system provides an array of serial, discrete, MIL-STD-1553, and other data bus interfaces, as well as options for embedded IMU, EGI, and differential GPS functionality. The TESseract VNXx4 is the first in a line of expanding systems which can shrink or grow as needs change, from a small 2 card system, to a fully redundant 8 slot solution.
