Atego successfully deployed its Aonix PERC virtual machine technology to support Lockheed Martin’s Java language components used in the Aegis open-architecture system during recent combat tests.

Guided missile cruiser USS Bunker Hill (CG 52), modernised with the Aegis weapon system, completed an operational trial of its full combat system.

Already deployed in various fielded systems in the military/aerospace, telecommunications, transportation and industrial control markets, the Aonix PERC Ultra is used by Lockheed Martin in its Aegis weapon system, providing deterministic, real-time performance and high productivity development.

The Aonix PERC Ultra also provides the instrumentation and VM management tools necessary to support the mission-critical real-time requirements of the Aegis weapon system.

Aegis is a naval defence system and a sea-based element of the US Ballistic Missile Defense System.

Its precision Spy-1 radar and integrated command-and-control system guide the interceptor and uplink target track information to the missile for terminal homing.

The system can detect, track and engage targets, ranging from sea-skimming cruise missiles to ballistic missiles in space.

The 92 Aegis-equipped ships currently in service around the globe have more than 1,000 years of at-sea operational experience and have launched more than 3,500 missiles in tests and real-world operations.

Atego’s Aonix PERC Ultra is a virtual machine and toolset created for demanding embedded and real-time systems requiring J2SE support.

The Aonix PERC Ultra delivers the efficiency of Java Standard Edition support without sacrificing integrity, performance or real-time behaviour, according to the company.

The latest version, PERC Ultra 5.3, offers ahead-of-time and just-in-time compilation, remote debug support, deterministic garbage collection, standard graphics and extended commercial real-time operating system support.

The Aonix PERC Ultra is available now from Atego.

The system provides customers with the use of its development tools at no charge in combination with a maintenance contract.

Target execution and deployment licence pricing is available on request.
