Through the life cycle of our project, Skayl transitioned from trainers, to

working with us side-by-side, to expert consultants and eventually to ‘phone a

friend.’ It was a pleasure working with them.

STANDARDS-BASED DESIGN

Rapid Alignment to the FACE™ Technical Standard

CinC + Collaborative data modeling & automated integration tool generates the first truly configurable Transport Services (TS) aligned with FACE (Future Airborne Capability Environment) Technical Standard & other industry standards. CinC™ (Configurable Infrastructure Capability) Rapidly generate the Configurable Infrastructure (FACE TS) to interconnect your systems. CinC code is aligned to all configured standards including the FACE Technical Standard version 3.0. Conformant Data Model PHENOM includes the first UAS DSDM verified conformant to FACE with recent additions. Leverage this foundation to collaboratively model with automated guidance that enforces conformance and best practices with each step. Model Conformance & Analytics Reporting Assess key model health indicators during model design with on-demand analytical reporting that provides FACE 3.0 checks and recommendations. Automated Validation & Testing Test and validate generated configurable FACE TS (Transport Service) automatically as integration software is generated. Conformant Data Model Exports Develop and export data models including .face files. Engineering Artifacts Produce text or diagram-based model and interface engineering artifacts. Backward & Forward Compatibility Perform model versioning and trace, not only changes, but the impact of those changes. Automated suggestions help maintain conformance through changes. FACE™ and logo design are trademarks of The Open Group in the United States and other countries

THE FUTURE OF INTEGRATION Managed Infrastructure Throughout the Life Cycle

CinC™ Skayl's revolutionary Configurable Infrastructure Capability rapidly generates integration code to interconnect your modeled systems. Intelligent template-based runtime-ready code is conformant to all configured standards. CinC decouples middleware from applications, enables system scalability, and infrastructure management is eased through one centralized and automated tool set, PHENOM. Automated Validation & Testing Test and validate automatically as integration software is generated. Conformant Data Model Exports Develop and export conformant data models with guided modeling. Model Analytics Reports Assess key model health indicators during model design with analytical reporting. Data Model Design Artifacts Produce diagram-based design artifacts during collaborative planning. Backward & Forward Compatibility Perform model versioning and trace not only changes but the impact of those changes. Engineering Artifacts Produce text or diagram-based model and interface engineering artifacts.

YOU BUILD SOFTWARE

Our Tools Generate & Maintain the Infrastructure That Ties it All Together Why is Integration So Hard?

TRADITIONAL INTEGRATION

Traditional Systems Integration is heavily reliant on human interpretation of systems documentation and by its very nature is subject to change. In addition, the expertise necessary to successfully accomplish this work is scarce. Such heavy reliance on scarce human-resources translates into excessive costs and delays.

Our Innovations Benefits More Than Just Software Developers Software Engineering

Requirements

Architecture

Engineers can focus on innovative development rather than monotonous code-wiring, and software development is never held up by modeling efforts.

Models tying business & technical requirements to the architecture provide an efficient means of verifying that requirements have been satisfied.

Systems Architects, Functional Architects, and others benefit from a unique holistic and semantic perspective of the architecture.

Data Modeling

Integration

Testing

Guided tooling, enforced rules of construction, and quality checks streamline data model construction, maintenance, testing, and conformance.

Tooling provides in-depth perspective on the semantic meaning of all interfaces and generates configurable infrastructure code to be used like integration "glue."

Automated testing, including conformance checks, enables testers to significantly reduce the test-modify-retest cycle and achieve more in less time.

Maintenance

The Business Case

Systems maintenance complexity is dramatically reduced through centralized, semi-automated infrastructure updates, resulting in significant savings.

U.S. Defense is tasked with expanding and maintaining interoperability across increasingly larger and more complex systems. In order to maintain a competitive advantage, we must also be able to quickly deploy new technologies to our warfighters. Skayl's innovations help ensure safe, secure, rapid development, testing, deployment and maintenance.

“TO COMPETE IN THIS THREAT ENVIRONMENT,

[US DEFENSE] RELIES ON

INTEGRATED MULTI-SERVICE MULTI-DOMAIN CAPABILITIES... FOR LASTING PEACE & PROSPERITY.”**
