Reduce Risks Today and Tomorrow

Deploy solutions that are built from the ground up to handle today’s toughest challenges and simplify evolution to new technologies.

All of our solutions are based on a modular and open standards-based architecture. They are built using rigorous design methodologies and they conform to key safety standards and regulations for air, ground, and sea platforms.

In addition, we leverage our hands-on experience with platforms and programs worldwide to develop hardware and software with reusable design artifacts. And our experts actively contribute to the standards bodies working on the next generation of defense and aerospace standards. As a result, we’re able to deliver solutions on-spec, on-time, and on-budget to reduce risk at every stage of any program.

Together, our initiatives:

  • Accelerate time to market
  • Lower program costs
  • Simplify integration into legacy and new systems
  • Streamline evolution to next-generation technologies
  • Expedite certification processes

What is Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)?

On January 7, 2019, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) issued a memo, signed by the Secretaries of the Army, Air Force, and Navy, mandating the use of the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA). The memo states that “MOSA supporting standards should be included in all requirements, programming and development activities for future weapon system modifications and new start development programs to the maximum extent possible.” The MOSA directive has accelerated the adoption of a variety of open standards, such as The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) and the U.S. Army CCDC C5ISR Center’s C5ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS), that have been adopted by the three military branches.

Combine Ruggedization, Reliability, and Security

Don’t compromise on program requirements.

We follow stringent design, manufacturing, and test processes to ensure every module, subsystem, and system we deliver is rugged, reliable, and secure.

Our ruggedization processes are based on decades of research and development into advanced packaging, materials technology, and cooling techniques. As a result, all of our solutions can withstand extreme temperature, shock, vibration, and environmental hazards. And we lead the industry in the thermal management and lifecycle maintenance programs needed to provide highly reliable performance in the harshest air, ground, and sea environments over the long term.

To protect data security, we go beyond cybersecurity and encryption, applying rigorous supply chain processes that protect the integrity of all components on every module, subsystem, and system.
