About ADI

Applied Dynamics helps companies make better use of industrial computing and data assets. Applied Dynamics flagship product, the ADEPT Framework, is an industrial data and control software platform built around the concept of a “data framework” that links industrial real-time Linux servers as a distributed resource and provides desktop client control of the time-deterministic computing and data handling capability. The ADEPT Framework is used in the largest, most demanding industrial data and control applications across the global aerospace and defense industry, but also scales down to work with low-cost computing and open source real-time Linux. The open architecture framework allows users to leverage best-in-class COTS and open-source technologies in a common, project-based environment. The ADEPT user base includes 14 of the global top 35 A&D companies and extends into marine, power systems, oil & gas, and the automotive industry.
