RACE - Building Distributed Actor Systems

The Runtime for Airspace Concept Evaluation (RACE) is a software architecture and framework to build configurable, highly concurrent and distributed message based systems. Among other things, RACE can be used to rapidly build simulations that span several machines (including synchronized displays), interface existing hardware simulators and other live data feeds, and incorporate sophisticated visualization components such as NASA’s WorldWind viewer.

RACE is implemented as a distributed actor system built on top of the Akka framework, primarily uses Scala as programming language and runs within Java Virtual Machines.
