Open Standards are Key to Resolving Today's Challenges
As a result of our long-time commitment to developing modular COTS solutions based on open standards architecture, along with our dedication to industry collaboration and open standards development, Curtiss-Wright is ideally positioned to deliver ruggedized, reliable, and secure COTS solutions that are aligned with key industry standards.
The MOSA Imperative
This Curtiss-Wright Position Paper aims to put MOSA (Modular Open Systems Approach) into perspective and enable you, whether a defense contractor, a decision-maker at the DoD, or a public policymaker, to put the increasingly relevant MOSA to use better. MOSA drives faster time to market, lower cost, increased software portability, technology innovation, and interoperability among systems across all defense domains. This Position Paper will guide you through why MOSA exists, its history and context, and why MOSA is ideally suited to creating the capabilities required to counter an uncertain and dangerous world of rapidly shifting threats.
Explore MOSA-Supporting Standards
An acquisition and design strategy that prioritizes the use of open standards-based technology.
Aims to standardize approaches to bring open standards solutions to avionics systems.
Promotes the use of open standard physical and logical interfaces between LRU systems.
Developed to offer new capabilities including reducing SWaP as well as interoperability functions.
Mandates the use of open, modular, and scalable architectures in the design of new and upgraded ground vehicles.
Increase Interoperability, Maintainability & More with MOSA
Building on our years of experience and participation in the development of open standards, we design our rugged hardware to bring the benefits of a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) architecture to deployed ground, airborne, and naval platforms. Explore our solutions aligned with MOSA-supporting standards like SOSA, CMOSS, VICTORY, GVA, FACE, and OMS/UCI.
A leader in Open Standards
Curtiss-Wright has been a leading contributor to the VITA Standards Organization (VSO) that oversees the definition of OpenVPX, PMC, XMC, and FMC form-factor standards that provide the foundation of both CMOSS and SOSA technical standards.
VPX (VITA 46) specifications establish a new direction for the next revolution in bus boards.
Defines the maximum amount of FPGA connectivity to connect directly with IO devices fitted to the mezzanine.
Reduce Risks, Lower Costs, and Speed Deployment of the Applications Warfighters Need Most
Curtiss-Wright offers a broad range of modules and systems designed in compliance with open architecture standards including OpenVPX, VPX, FMC, GVA, and TMS.
