ARTiSAN's Real-time Studio Professional Selected by Logica for Development of British Armyís Fire Control System

8/23/2002 - ARTiSAN Software Tools, a leading supplier of UML-based real-time systems and software modeling tools, announced that Logica, the global solutions company, has selected ARTiSAN's Real-time Studio Professional to support the development of the Fire Control Battlefield Information System Appliance (BISA) for the British army.

"We needed to select a tool that has multi-user capabilities, as our teams are large and canít afford to be out of synch," explained Andy Walter, Development Manager at Logica." Real-time Studioís multi-user repository makes the tool a sound fit for our needs. System partitioning was also very important, as we need to model a number of sub-systems each with different target environments and written in a mix of C++ and Ada, but sharing common areas of functionality. We needed a tool with the flexibility that would allow us to do this in a single model. While our evaluation of the competing tools was very thorough, we had the added benefit of internal references, as Real-time Studio had been used for over two years on the EGNOS project with great success."

"ARTiSANís approach of combining model-driven techniques and code generation within Real-time Studio has allowed us to develop a proven track record of providing real-time embedded systems and software development tools to the mil-aero sector," said Jeremy Goulding, President and CEO of ARTiSAN Software Tools. "We make their multi-user development paradigm transparent to users, and give the Logica BISA team a solid tool foundation that will allow them to evolve and leverage their designs for whatever targets they choose."
