CERDEC becomes VITA's sponsor member followed by Curtiss-Wright initiative to support the U.S. Army's MORA
Author: Mariana Iriarte at Military Embedded Systems
At the AUSA 2015 show, VITA announced their newest sponsor member, the U.S. Army’s Communications-Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Center (CERDEC), who is developing the U.S. Army’s Modular Open RF Architecture (MORA) that enables open standards-based RF and microwave modules and small-form factor subsystem designs that address the size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints of ground vehicles. Also announced at the show was Curtiss-Wright's support of the U.S. Army's MORA with compliant RF capabilities using embedded commericial-off-the-shelfs (COTS) systems.
Curtiss-Wright’s initiative to support the U.S. Army's MORA extends with their collaboration with DRS Technologies, Inc. to bring RF capabilities to a range of rugged embedded open architecture modules and small-form factor subsystems that support the U.S. Army’s MORA.

The Case for Distributed and Remote Management of Open Standards-Based Tactical Networks for Vehicles
To exploit the potential benefits of new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, video analysis, Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality and virtual reality, and other innovative technologies on mobile platforms at the tactical edge, Department of Defense (DoD) communications programs must effectively deploy advanced IT infrastructure, connectivity, and compute resources.
What is Modular Open Radio Frequency Architecture (MORA) ?
MORA is the U.S. Army's CCDC (Combat Capabilities Development Command) C5ISR Center's new architecture of open radio frequency interfaces for ground vehicles. Its purpose is to offer new capabilities, including reducing size, weight, and power (SWaP) and improving interoperability functions within the platform.
