QinetiQ is one of the UK’s top defence contractors, providing technology-based products and services to the UK military.
In March 2019 we were engaged to update, upgrade and integrate a mission-critical component for a ‘big data’ DDS-based pipeline system that processes over 2GBps from multiple sources and for multiple targets:
Refactored build and delivery systems to automated ‘devops’ workflows. Refactored major components to streamline event handling and state changes. Managed integration sessions with a small team of engineers to coordinate a loose collection of 3rd party bespoke systems using DDS, Java and C++ running on linux.
Upgrade delivered successfully to the end customer in March 2021.
