End-to-End Services, Technologies, Applications and Support to Meet any Requirements

Advance any program or platform with capabilities and technology innovations that address the most urgent and demanding warfighter requirements in the air, on the ground, and at sea.




Modular Open Systems Approaches (MOSA)

Curtiss-Wright’s modular open-systems approach (MOSA) uses industry-standard technologies and a scalable approach to subsystem and module design that delivers rapid innovation, increased vendor choice, application portability, and greater interoperability.

A modular open systems approach establishes common mechanical, electrical, protocol, and interface requirements defined by the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) technical standard, Common/C4ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS), Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE), Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability (VICTORY) and numerous other interoperability standards for aerospace and defense applications.

When system engineers leverage building blocks built to MOSA requirements, they access a greater ecosystem of products and IP to simplify their integration, test, and qualification - while reducing program cost and risk.
