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.
What is the C5ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS)?
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.
