MOSA on the March

Published in Military Embedded Systems
Written by Chris Wiltsey

Last October, we saw the release of SOSA Technical Standard 1.0, a real milestone in bringing interoperability to sensor systems. And this year's Tri-Services Open Architecture Interoperability Demonstration (TSOA-ID) saw a significant increase in participants and the number of live demonstrations showing working systems that embrace the key open standards that instantiate MOSA.

The MOSA demonstrations that Curtiss-Wright presented showed interoperability with nine different industry partners and featured a wide range of applications, including high-performance processing, tactical battlefield communications, networking, secure data storage, and more.

The message is that MOSA is real. MOSA has momentum. Programs of record are demanding MOSA solutions, while MOSA and its related open architectures are now commonly called out in RFPs, which is where the rubber hits the road.

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.
