Development of a large-scale, distributed software product such as
CASSIE requires experience, discipline, and attention to detail.

combination of commercial large-scale software development and U.S.
military contractor software development backgrounds. They bring

The components of the CASSIE System are written exclusively in the C
and C++ languages. C and C++ code result in the most compact, highest
performance software. Programming in these languages requires trained
professionals who are dedicated to their field.
The components of the CASSIE System support text data in the
Unicode format. This is the native format for the Windows 2000,
XP, Vista, 7 and 8 operating system families, allowing CASSIE to
run with maximum efficiency on these operating systems. Note that all future
Microsoft operating systems will be based on Unicode.
