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 Demonstrates Ease of Integration of Data-in-Motion and Data-at-Rest MOSA Solutions with PacStar IQ-Core Software
Prototype system demonstrates single control/management interface concept for Curtiss-Wright MOSA-based DTS1 network attached storage (NAS) device and PacStar tactical battlefield network and processing systems.
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.
Curtiss-Wright Debuts Rugged Cisco IOS-XE Network Appliance/Backbone that Combines Network Router and Switch
High-performance router + switch integrates secure Cisco ESR-6300 embedded services router (ESR) and ESS-3300 embedded services switch (ESS) technology into single SWaP-optimized ultra-rugged chassis.
It’s Time: Time Sensitive Networking and Deterministic Networking
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a set of Ethernet networking capabilities used to transmit time-sensitive data across standard Ethernet networks. Originally, TSN grew out of the IEEE 802.1 standard working groups on Audio Video Bridging (AVB) to make sure that independent networks streams for audio and video data arrive at the correct times to ensure synchronization.
Exploiting Big Data for Defense
The “big data problem” – too much raw data coming too fast over too many channels – remains sizable in both the defense arena and in the commercial realm, but currently entities from both sides are making consistent efforts to chip away at it.
How to Choose a Rugged Ethernet Switch or Router
The first consideration when choosing an Ethernet switch or router – and one that you may have already determined when you started evaluating options – is form factor.
Curtiss-Wright Introduces 10 Gb Ethernet NAS with Two-Layer Encryption to Protect Critical Sensor Data on Deployed Platforms
New HSR10 network attached storage (NAS) system provides up to 32 TB storage capacity and two-layers of data encryption and roadmap to CSfC encryption
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.
Upgrading Data Storage Capacity on Legacy Aircraft with Open Standards
From intelligence surveillance reconnaissance sensors, video, and other proliferating sources, data just keeps growing. How can you store it and how do you keep it safe?
Curtiss-Wright Achieves United States and International Re-Certification of Top Secret Data-at-Rest (DAR) Encryption Layers for the DTS1 Storage Solution
Data Transport System (DTS1), a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, receives bi-annual certification from both National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) and Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA)
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.
