Open Source SDR: a Faster, Better Way to Develop and Deploy EW Capabilities
Maintaining dominance of the electromagnetic spectrum has never been more critical to mission success. The challenge facing system designers is how to accelerate the transition of new communications and electronic warfare (EW) capabilities from concept to the laboratory and then expedite the deployment of those new capabilities to the warfighter.
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.
Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) – Taking EW Systems to the Next Level
The Sensor Open Systems Architecture Technical Standard (SOSA) – which will bring many benefits to designers of radar systems – will also have a beneficial effect on the design of electronic warfare (EW) systems.
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.
Curtiss-Wright Marks Historic Release of SOSA Technical Standard Release 1.0 with Open Standards Guide
New standard defines modular open systems approach (MOSA) for architecting deployed sensor processing systems.
SOSA Standard Taking Hold in Military Embedded Computing
The Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) seeks to ensure rapid upgrades and technology insertion, no vendor lock, and accommodation of existing standards.
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.
Curtiss-Wright Wins Best Paper at 13th Annual GVSETS Conference
The paper, entitled “Applying Open Standard Electronic Architectures for Ground Vehicles,” provided an in-depth introduction and overview of the advantages of MOSA open architecture solutions and the best practices for bringing new capabilities to ground vehicles.
Military Displays: Balancing Innovation and SWaP-C Constraints
Military-display designers continue to face stringent size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) constraints while integrating commercial innovations like HD – and soon 4K – into systems that must work with legacy sensors and interfaces while also complying with a variety of open architectures and standards.
Newer Rugged Touch Screens Benefit The Modern Warfighter
Today’s modern warfighters have grown up with smartphones and tablets with intuitive, multitouch projected capacitive (PCAP) touch screens. They rely heavily on these devices in their personal lives and they expect to have access to the same capabilities and conveniences in the field.
Army TITAN Team from Raytheon Leverages MOSA Expertise
Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) expertise is a key characteristic of the team Raytheon Technologies is putting together to support development of the U.S. Army’s Tactical Intelligence Targeting Access Node (TITAN) program.
