The U.S. Army CCDC CMOSS defines an open architecture that enables in-vehicle hardware and software resources to be shared where appropriate, greatly reducing SWaP-C, improving communications between systems, and creating a better user experience.
Exploring SOSA, CMOSS, FACE, VICTORY, and More
We examine the 2019 tri-services memo regarding MOSA, and what open standards such as SOSA, FACE, and VICTORY mean for today’s military programs.
Our Commitment to Open Standards
Curtiss-Wright is committed to delivering the broadest selection of reliable, high-performance, CMOSS-aligned hardware, ensuring our products will be ready to meet future requirements, alleviate interoperability challenges, and deliver a variety of benefits to mission-critical C5ISR systems.
Our innovative plug-in cards (PICs) designed to meet CMOSS program requirements provide the hardware foundation for next-generation defense capabilities, like machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). And our system integration experts are ready to provide the expertise, services, and chassis options to bring your system to market even faster.

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 the Modular Open Systems Approach 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.
Ensures accurate positioning, navigation, and timing information is delivered in GPS/GNSS-denied environments.
