Leveraging a Modular Open Systems Approach for Modified COTS
This white paper describes how a modular open systems approach (MOSA) can be combined with modified COTS (MCOTS) solutions to meet unique system and program requirements and minimize NRE costs. By leveraging MOSA standards and MCOTS variants, systems integrators can reduce program risk and accelerate deployment of rugged embedded mission systems.
Creating the Perfect Module for Any Requirement
Curtiss-Wright recently engaged with a customer that required custom backplane requirements for a new mission computer based on 3U VPX hardware. Their goal with this new system was to further reduce size, weight, and power (SWaP) in their next-gen mission computers, as well as be able to bid into Foreign Military Sales (FMS). Read the case study to learn more about the challenge, solution and results.
