Skayl Reinvents SoS Interoperability with Release of its Configurable Infrastructure Capability

January 12, 2021 – While the world keeps its fingers crossed that 2021 will bring welcome change, small business Skayl is doing their part to help ensure that interoperability of large systems, at least, will be significantly more rapid, robust and secure in the years to come.

Large, complex Systems of Systems (SoS) integrations of heterogeneous technologies, like those required in aviation, fleet management, health care and more, can cost millions of dollars and take years to accomplish. Once integrated, maintaining the integration of those systems - adding new technologies, updating software, swapping devices etc. - is becoming more and more costly and time consuming as our reliance on these large systems and the speed of developing technologies increases.

Headquartered near Washington DC, small business Skayl recently announced the release of its Configurable Infrastructure Capability (CinC™ – pronounced sync). CinC is the first truly scalable, configurable integration infrastructure driven by a formal, model-based approach. CinC is integration software infrastructure that is automatically generated from data models and configurable templates. This infrastructure is produced for systems using a variety of messaging technologies and standards and integrates directly into client's runtime code. The ability to auto-generate integration code in this way reduces the required time and effort of a new system integration into an existing one by up to 90%.

“Skayl has been dedicated to speeding mission critical integration since its founding in 2016, and the initial release of CinC is the next logical step in reaching that goal,” said Chris Allport, Skayl Co-Founder and President. “Our work with the Department of Defense and major aviation and aerospace companies has led to the development of a configurable infrastructure in alignment with the strict safety requirements and standards of those industries.”

CinC is aligned with the Future Airborne Capability (FACE™) Technical Standard Safety-Base Profile leveraged by certain programs within both the US Army and Navy. Generated CinC Transport Service Segment (TSS) passes the FACE™ 3.0 Technical Standard Conformance Test Suite. CinC can be leveraged independently or, for ease of integration management, in concert with Skayl’s flagship product PHENOM™, an advanced collaborative data model management software.

Gordon Hunt, Skayl’s Scottsdale-based Co-Founder explained, “By working closely with the Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDEVCOM) on configurable infrastructure, we have developed technology which helps to address their acquisition and engineering integration challenges of air vehicle and mission systems software.”

Skayl principals have been actively supporting the Open Group’s Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Consortium since 2012. They have been instrumental in shaping the discussion about the Data Architecture Working Group and are recognized as thought-leaders in this realm of data architecture.
