The development of our OS is every so often spawning interesting results which we wrap-up into products. We now have two products for the legal system tailored to suit the Romanian jurist, lawyer, judge, company administrator, any person that runs a business and needs to know the law in good detail. Both these systems are navigators, one works on huge pre-existing archives, the other constructs archives of a different nature and towards a different goal.


Gaius is a system of navigating relationary databases. This world we've noticed is dominated by a navigation tool known as the Explorer. This was actually the key to the Windows success. Everything is neatly grouped in an arborescence that the user browses with a tree control along the left hand side,  chooses one item and opens it in the right panel. A tremendous amount of technology is behind this, having OLE and COM as the spearhead. Slightly more generic members of the Explorer family are the Internet Explorer and SUN's Navigator for loosely defined datasets such as with the internet. 

The design of our line of Operating Systems has lead us to realize the limits of the current type of navigation. Our data sets are multiply cross-referenced,  our nodes belong to multiple hierarchies, the definition of our backbones is fully closed in terms of typology and topography, and the relationships in our file systems are therefore conceptually more complex than what one has grown to expect from today's operating systems. To browse our file systems we developed here a new concept together with a method called the Correlator. The correlator is also a member of the Explorer family but only works on what we here call "full data closures". A data closure is a network of objects where navigation is possible on a multitude of directions, so far nothing new, but the "full" closure means that the dataset must guarantee the existence of a navigation path from any one object towards any other object along any of the major directions of navigation. This we grew to call here Correlation, and the tool to create such data sets, a Correlator. The Correlator is deployed starting with any node in the dataset, not with the Root as an Explorer, shows the object's content, and around the main viewer it shows the relationary neighborhood along all possible directions of navigation. 

We use Gaius as part of a SW design tool which is still in R&D, the front end of our language engine. The datasets it has to traverse and configure here are of an indefinite complexity, most often recursive, and not something that we can show you yet, without a tone of explaining. 

Constructing such datasets requires skill and knowledge, so rather than confront the user with complexities, we segregated the internals of Gaius into different products: Gaius Navigator- a viewer only for pre-constructed archives, and Gaius Correlator a special law analysis system with a role complementary to the Navigator. The choices is yours.

Gaius™ Navigator
The navigator is a tool for revolving within a cross-referenced legal archive, elegantly solving all the aspects of the problem domain with the minimum amount of user interface. The companion Romanian Legal Archive is a tightly compressed, and cross referenced database of some 50,000 legal norms. The archive is produced by one of our in-house expert systems called Edict™. The intended target for Gaius Navigator is the lawyer, the judge, the student of Law or Economics,  the professor, the businessman needing to understand the law. This system is not another Goggle, it's a lot more and there would normally be an initial learning penalty before becoming conversant with it. Remember that you are not alone in this, will be there to help you through.

Gaius™ Correlator

There are no two ways about this: Gaius Correlator is a sophisticated tool responding to an even more sophisticated problem that perhaps very few of you would recognize as such. The intended audience for this system is this time the expert in Law, the judge, the barrister, the professor, the Authority in the process of legislating, the company administrator studying an intricate set of consequences, even the student having to dig-up a thesis. The difference from Gaius Navigator is that the Correlator is a notional cross-referencing and annotation system where the user carries-out complex tasks of breaking down a smaller selection of  legal documents, padding them with doctrine. The Correlator is not a consumer tool, it is rather a producer. The tool places a demand on the user to be disciplined, and be an elegant thinker.

Rochelle is a totally different cattle of fish to what we've discussed with Gaius. Rochelle is an Exchange Server on a hybrid TCP/IP network. In its current state it sends and receives faxes using Linux machines as storage and transmission drivers. This is one of our finite products descending from the Object Transaction Protocol technology, which is currently a smaller alternative to Anna K5. The product is targeting large organizations with many accounts and hierarchies in the chart, where people need to exchange each other's faxes. You too can have it even if you're smaller, but then you might get by easier with Windows fax services.


Iris is the beginning our Video-Over-IP technology again built over the Object Transaction Protocol. In its current state, the system features a Video Surveillance Station that collects video streams from a network of IP cameras and renders clusters of them onto one or more monitoring stations. The other feature of Iris  is the retransmission of video over the network through its video relay module. This product is an early beta which we post here to probe your interest.

DGRS is an ERP-class Document Generation and Recognition system.
Nano is the foundation of our runtime engines. It is the smallest Operating System kernel system possible and a reduction to essentials of ANNA K5.
