On Wednesday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m. CEST, Obeo’s Spacecraft 42 will launch the SIRIUS-II mission from Code Launch Complex 42 (CLC-42) at Nantes Dev Force Station in France. SIRIUS-I mission previously launched Sirius to the Eclipse Foundation with Obeo’s & Thales astronauts on board back in 2013. The first mission was a success with the adoption of Sirius Desktop, based on the Eclipse platform, by a large community.
SIRIUS-II Mission aims to release Sirius Web, the Cloud-based evolution of Sirius, 100% Open Source. This mission is also in charge of the launch of the Obeo Cloud Platform (OCP), the solution offered by Obeo for deploying modeling tools to the web. With Sirius Web, modeling tools developed with Sirius can be installed on a web server and are rendered in a browser. Our goal is to carry the spirit of Sirius into a new technological space.
