Embedded Systems Made With MOSA in Mind

Mission computers are the heart of every platform. To ensure your mission success, our embedded computing systems are backed by decades of experience developing C5ISR, vetronics, and program-specific system solutions. Whether you're looking for a modular, small form-factor (SFF) line replaceable unit (LRU) or a scalable VPX system designed to meet your specific requirements, our computing systems are built rugged to perform optimally in the harshest deployed environments on land, in the air, or at sea. Our industry-leading system architects partner with you to meet your system integration and program management requirements. They leverage our comprehensive range of open architecture commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) building blocks or design a unique custom solution when required.

3U VPX Systems
Meet your program requirements (including those around SOSA, CMOSS, and OMS) with our selection of 3U VPX systems integrated with COTS modules.
6U VPX & VME Systems
Tailor your system to meet program requirements with our selection of 6U systems, COTS modules, and expert system integration services.
Program-Specific Systems
Explore examples of program-specific systems that can be tailored to your program requirements with the help of our expert integration services.
PacStar Integrated Solutions
Tactical and expeditionary solutions based on the PacStar® 400-Series, combined with PacStar IQ-Core® Software and a wide array of partner technologies, pre-integrated and ready to meet mission requirements.
Small & Ultra-Small Form Factor Mission Computers

Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) Solutions

Explore our solutions aligned to The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) Technical Standard, the U.S. Army CCDC C5ISR Center’s C5ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS), and more.

Why Open Standards Like CMOSS and SOSA Are the New Normal

Introducing your essential guide to all things MOSA. This white paper explores the MOSA directive, its significance for defense technology, and MOSA-supporting standards like SOSA, CMOSS, VICTORY, GVA, FACE, and OMS/UCI.  


Ensuring Seamless Integration and Future-Ready Scalability

Size, weight, and power (SWaP) is critical for embedded systems, especially those destined for small aircraft or land vehicles. At the same time, these systems must be flexible to interface with the many different legacy or modern sensors, networking devices, and other onboard systems. See how our small form factor mission computers deliver modularity and scalability in a remarkably small footprint.
