Abstract : RTware is working on a proposal for an SBIR Phase II software research and development project for distributed control systems (DCS) using Module Interconnect Frameworks (MIF). SBIR Phase I work includes research into the feasibility, design and benefits of such a system, resulting in a detailed Phase II proposal. The proposed software package will be based on RTware's Control-Calc real-time spreadsheet control system and the Polylith MIF system from the University of Maryland. Work in the initial stage of Phase I has identified the main outlines of the package, and described key benefits to the Department of Defense (see the May 30th Progress Report). Work in the latest time period involved developing a detailed description of the proposed system and trying test implementations with the Polylith package. That description breaks the system down into two major components: The first component (DCS-I) is a distributed services capability for accessing remote procedures and data both into and out of the Control-Calc spreadsheet. The second component (DCS-II) will allow the largely transparent distribution of compiled Control-Calc code segment across remote, and heterogeneous, platforms.
