SAVE this Space: Defining the C5ISR Space for Army Vehicles
To lower the cost and help speed the pace of technology upgrades for C5ISR [command, control, computers, communications, cyber, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance] systems on Army vehicles, the U.S. Army’s Program Executive Officer (PEO) for Ground Combat Systems (GCS) has issued an Interface Description Document (IDD).
CMOSS: Building-Block Architecture Brings Speed, Cost Benefits
The C4ISR/Electronic Warfare Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS) enables engineers and developers of systems used by the warfighter to move toward much faster technology insertions and refreshes, with a corresponding reduction in long-term life cycle costs.
What is a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)?
The MOSA directive has accelerated the adoption of a variety of MOSA supporting standards, including SOSA, CMOSS, FACE, VICTORY, and GVA, by the Army, Air Force, and Navy.
Curtiss-Wright Collaborates with NI to Migrate SDR Technology to CMOSS and SOSA Technical Standard Aligned Systems
New VPX3-E320 module is industry’s first fully rugged MOSA-based 3U OpenVPX variant of NI’s popular Ettus Research USRP E320 SDR.
What are the Benefits of a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)?
According to the DoD, the use of MOSA solutions will "support a more rapid evolution of capabilities and technologies throughout the product life cycle." This blog discusses the benefits of MOSA.
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.
Curtiss-Wright Sets New Standard for SBC Performance with First 11th Gen Intel Core OpenVPX Module
VPX6-1961 SBC features the new 8-Core 11th Gen Intel Xeon W (“formerly Tiger Lake-H”) to deliver significant advances in integrated graphics and accelerated AI/ML processing.
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.
