Curtiss-Wright Introduces First SOSA Aligned A-PNT Module with Integrated Alternative RF Navigation and Support for the pntOS Operating Environment
New VPX3-673A OpenVPX™ module delivers MOSA solution for trusted PNT information in environments with limited or denied GPS
Curtiss-Wright Honored to Host Tri-Service Open Architecture Interoperability Demonstration TIM & Expo
Curtiss-Wright has announced that it is serving in the honored role of Distinguished Host for the Tri-Service Open Architecture Interoperability Demonstration (TSOA-ID) TIM & Expo being held March 15 at the Solomons Inn Resort, Marina, MD.
Embedded Computing Enclosures go Standard, and go Small
Industry standards and guidelines such as MOSA, SOSA, CMOSS, SAVE, and FACE are driving the latest developments in enclosures, chassis, and backplane databuses, as small for factors are ready to take center stage.
The Relative and the Absolute: A MOSA Path to Complementary Position, Navigation, and Time Information for GPS
The use of a modular open systems approach (MOSA) will benefit the effort to integrate alternative position, navigation, and timing (PNT) technologies into platforms.
What is a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)?
The Modular Open Systems Approach directive has accelerated the adoption of a variety of Modular Open Systems Approach supporting standards, including SOSA, CMOSS, FACE, VICTORY, and GVA, by the Army, Air Force, and Navy.
Curtiss-Wright Introduces New Starter Kit System and 8-Slot OpenVPX Chassis to Speed Development of CMOSS/SOSA Technical Standard 1.0 Aligned Solutions
New CMOSS/SOSA Technical Standard 1.0 aligned Starter Kit system integrates VICTORY Network, A-PNT and Intel® Xeon Processor SBC. 8-Slot CMOSS/SOSA Technical Standard 1.0 aligned 3U.
Open Standards Drive Flexibility in Defense System Designs
Backed by broad support from government and industry, the release of SOSA Technical Standard 1.0 promises a new era of open standards-based system integration with flexibility and interoperability as its hallmarks.
Open Architecture Initiatives Bolster Unmanned Sensors and Systems
The advent of unmanned systems reflects a huge aspect of warfare – that of protecting the warfighter – through the development of platforms that can be operated by humans from a distance, keeping them out of harm’s way.
Simplifying the Integration of Assured PNT with CMOSS/SOSA Aligned Solutions
From a design and engineering perspective, there are many moving parts to consider and combine in order to arrive at a position, navigation, and timing (PNT) truth. In addition, solutions must be easy to integrate into the available space on existing platforms, whether they are unmanned aerial systems (UASs) or other aircraft, ground-based operations, or systems at sea.
Curtiss-Wright Expands Family of Rugged A-PNT Solutions for Military Ground Vehicles with Introduction of Vehicle Computer/Switch
New A-PNT vehicle computer and Gigabit Ethernet switch provide Chip Scale Atomic Clock, Inertial Measurement Unit and direct connection to real-time Global Positioning System (GPS).
The Ever-Shrinking World of Small-Form-Factor Embedded Computing
New computer boards offer high performance, thermal management, and peripherals in a smaller size than 3U VPX, with artificial intelligence (AI) and GPGPU processing.
Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA): Enabling the Next Generation of Flexible and Adaptable Radar Systems
In order to keep up with the continued acceleration of new technology and to be able to protect the warfighter from the latest threats, it is essential that we can turn our deployed platforms into adaptable entities that can evolve over time and are not static. The SOSA [Sensor Open Systems Architecture] Technical Standard is the next major step in realizing this goal.
