Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) March 9, 2010
Presagis™, a leading provider of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) modeling, simulation and embedded display graphics software, today announced the formation of a business unit focused solely on bringing embedded graphics solutions to market. Following the company’s recent acquisition of Seaweed Systems, this dedicated group will tap into Presagis’ experience in delivering highly optimized, standards-based COTS graphics drivers and human-machine-interface (HMI) software for the embedded market. End users will benefit by having one supplier as the point of integrated development and support for both graphics drivers and HMI software tools, ultimately reducing project risk and improving project timelines.
“In response to the demands for complex, integrated digital displays and powerful graphics drivers, we are structuring our organization in a way that will better serve the needs of the industry,” said Robert Kopersiewich, Vice President and General Manager of Embedded Graphics at Presagis. “We are listening to our customers and will provide them with the benefits of seamlessly developed products, a single point for sales and support, as well as HMI and graphic driver expertise within one innovative engineering team.”
Building on Presagis experience in developing solutions for the aerospace and automotive industry, the new embedded graphics unit will develop targeted solutions for customers in markets that would like to replace conventional system controls with sophisticated digital displays.
“Optimizing performance is the Holy Grail when developing high-end graphics applications,” said Andreas Schacht, Head of Avionics Driver & Support Software at Defence Electronics, an integrated activity of EADS Defence & Security. “We recently expanded our relationship with Presagis and our use of VAPS QCG to include the SeaWind driver for this very reason. Having one supplier developing, supporting and optimizing both drivers and HMI products will help us to further enhance performance of our applications.”
Presagis will also continue to develop strategic relationships with other key embedded COTS software and hardware organizations such as Wind River, Green Hills Software, Curtiss Wright and GE Intelligent Platforms to ensure that the Presagis embedded graphic solutions are optimized for the leading operating and development platforms.
“The new Presagis business unit sets a clear path for developers creating complex digital displays,” said Rob Hoffman, Vice President and General Manager, Aerospace and Defense, Wind River. “As a long-standing Presagis and Seaweed partner, our customers will also reap the benefits of these tightly integrated solutions with the full confidence that our relationships will help them to lower project costs and program risks.”
