University Licensing Program

We are committed to our support of Universities across the world

The goal of the Free University License Program at Twin Oaks Computing is to help professors, instructors, and students successfully employ our CoreDX DDS middleware.

CoreDX DDS is a small footprint implementation of the Data Distribution (DDS) Standard that is sponsored by the Object Management Group (OMG). DDS was designed specifically to meet the performance and quality of service requirements of real-time, embedded, time-critical, and mission-critical applications. Your classrooms, computer labs, research projects, and individual studies will benefit from the opportunity to build upon a quality implementation of an important open standard middleware.


By participating in our Free University License Program, your projects will gain access to our state of the art middleware technologies. These technologies can help rapidly advance research goals in several ways:

  • A stable and proven middleware technology like CoreDX DDS can accelerate system development by abstracting the complex details of network data communication.
  • The unprecedented flexibility of the DDS Standard, with Dynamic Discovery and Type Safety, provide tools that are perfectly suited to system designs that evolve rapidly.
  • Your ability to commercialize research projects is magnified by a strong infrastructure foundation like CoreDX DDS.

Communication technologies are our passion, and we love sharing our passion with other students and professionals of computer science. This is why we make it easy for universities to obtain free licenses and other materials for labs, classrooms, and research projects. Twin Oaks is committed to supporting the future generations of distributed systems that exploit the benefits of this world-class technology.

University Offerings

We offer free licenses and technical support to University projects. But our support doesn't stop there. We provide free on line and on site lectures and seminars to students and faculty. Are you interested in configuring a lab or other environment with CoreDX DDS? We can help you establish a good environment for teaching, learning, and in-depth research using CoreDX DDS technologies.
