From the Oracle press release, this is how the NetBeans Platform based winners of this year's Duke's Choice Awards are described:

  • a.i. solutions – To help facilitate and deploy the 2014 launch of National Aeronautics and Space Agency’s (NASA) Magnetospheric Multiscale mission, a.i. solutions used Java Development Kit (JDK) 7, the NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and JavaFX to create the GEONS Ground Support System. Using Java in this project helped reduce software development time by approximately 35 percent. Learn more.

  • Neuroph – Serbia-based University of Belgrade’s Faculty of
    Organizational Sciences created the Neuroph project to help researchers
    simulate brain activities and simplified brain-like structures. Built on
    an all-Java framework, Neuroph can be used for problem-solving,
    recognition, prediction, control, modeling, and functional
    approximations in medicine, robotics, finance, and software. Learn more
  • OpenSim – The team at the NIH Center for
    Biomedical Computation (known as Simbios) and the National Center for
    Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) at Stanford University,
    have created OpenSim, an application for modeling the muscles, joints,
    and bones that make up the body and simulating how humans move. With an
    open source approach that includes Java technology and the NetBeans IDE,
    OpenSim enables researchers, therapists, students and product designers
    to develop, analyze, simulate and share information to find
    treatments—and, perhaps one day, cures—for a variety of musculoskeletal
    disorders and diseases. Learn more

  • Robotswim – French startup Robotswim has produced the world’s
    smallest, (22 centimeters in length) commercially available robot fish,
    Jessiko. Jessiko can be programmed to swim in
    groups or schools using Jesskommand, a Java-based command and control
    software built using NetBeans IDE modules. Learn more
