For many years THALES had been developing its own proprietary middleware solutions for mission-critical systems but, since the end of the 1990s, THALES has been following an open architecture strategy and has been heavily involved in the development of open Standards.
It will ensure sustained R&D collaboration in the area of open middleware technologies and the dissemination in the larger market of a software technology initially developed by THALES for a limited business area.
