Skayl, a Westminster-based tech start-up, featured PHENOM, an integration automation software, at the September U.S. Army FACE (Future Airborne Capability Environment) Technical Interchange Meeting in Huntsville, Alabama. In its demonstration, Skayl invited users to try the PHENOM ecosystem, and integrate a legacy NATO STANAG 4586 vehicle simulator with the Army's new Crew Mission Station. PHENOM utilizes its IntegrationWare complier, which automates alignment, integration, and code-writing, and as such, dramatically decreases the cost and time that were once necessary to implementation.
The event also highlights PHENOM's integration portal, which includes Skayl's FACE Certified Domain Specific Data Model (DSDM) for manned and unmanned air vehicles. PHENOM enables multi-model management, manipulation, and maintenance, including the ability to import and merge new model content into existing models. It also aims to disrupt system-of-systems integration by calculating and generating integration software, rather than relying on costly hand-coded solutions.
