NI thinks big with Vitrociset collaboration

23 September 2010

National Instruments has joined forces with Vitrociset to target “big physics” applications such as particle accelerators and fusion devices. Vitrociset will integrate NI commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and software into its service packages to offer a product portfolio to organisations delivering sophisticated physics projects.

The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor fusion project welcomed the collaboration. Paola Batistoni, industry liaison officer for ITER Italy, said: “When two impressive companies like Vitrociset and NI collaborate, organisations like ITER benefit. This collaboration will make it possible for us to more fully implement COTS solutions in our projects, which ultimately will save us development time and costs”.

Stafano Concezzi, director of Big Physics at National Insturments, added: “Both NI and Vitrociset have provided a variety of impressive solutions for advanced control projects. Because Vitrociset has a solid reputation and long track record of addressing large, demanding control challenges, we at NI are excited about the many ways we can team up to help streamline the development of big physics projects.”

Rome based Vitrociset has delivered successful solutions for numerous complex applications ranging from European government space vehicle control and launching projects, avionics and air traffic management to environmental monitoring, telecommunications and security. By incorporating NI products such as NI LabVIEW graphical system development software and high-performance PXI instrumentation into its services, Vitrociset can provide solutions for governments and other large organisations seeking to address advanced control challenges.

NI has worked on some massive physics projects including the world famous CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and a tokamak fusion device control system at the Max Planck Institute for Pharma Physics.
