BLEND addresses the need for ubiquitous access to real-time data over a multitude of communication technologies and over an ultra-large scale of next-generation mission system-of-systems, also addressing scalability and quality of service (QoS).
The main technical objective of the project is the development of the “BLEND-Box” platform, composed of :
The results of the BLEND project will be immediately applicable in the context of Air Traffic Control applications to implement the technical and operational requirements envisioned by the SESAR Joint Undertaking. Specifically, EUROCONTROL has mandated the use of the Object Management Group (OMG) Data Distribution Standard for Real-Time Systems (DDS) as the standard for interconnecting Air Traffic Control Systems across Europe.
Other application domains in which the innovations introduced by the BLEND project may be exploited are Maritime Surveillance, Homeland Security, as well as real-time web applications.
