Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA), Unmanned Vehicles, and Trusted Computing
Today, with the increasing use of unmanned platforms to host intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance [ISR] sensor applications, system integrators need to ensure that the sensor systems and the critical data they collect and store are protected from falling into the wrong hands.
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.
Curtiss-Wright Introduces Its Highest Performance 3U OpenVPX Digital Signal Processing Engine
SOSA™-aligned CHAMP-XD3 DSP engine with new 10-Core Intel Xeon D-1700 processor delivers more scalable processing power with advanced security features for modern defense systems
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.
