Many of you have expressed interest in using DDS as an interoperable transport for JAUS. I am pleased to report that RTI is participating with the AS-4 Unmanned Systems Committee–the JAUS people–to explore the possibility of JAUS over DDS. The AS-4 JAUS/DDS task group has drafted ARP6227, a recommended practice that describes how JAUS Service Interface Definition Language (JSIDL) specifications can be mapped to the OMG standard DDS Interface Definition Language (IDL). Future work will investigate transport issues relevant to a common approach to JAUS over DDS, and that work could lead to an AS-4 standard.
