The objectives of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) – to improve system capabilities, compatibility, and cost – are predicated on a tight collaboration between government and industry. Although each service branch of the military has a model or view of what it needs in its standards to produce the systems it requires, a common goal of interoperability has reshaped the military-electronics landscape over these past few years.
See more, detect more, and decode more – these are the primary requirements being asked of unmanned systems in the military, and proprietary hardware and software can make achieving those goals a challenge. This is why Army, Navy, and Air Force leaders mandated a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) for all new programs and upgrades. MOSA examples include the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) Technical Standard and the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Technical Standard. These initiatives among others, aim to offer commonality of hardware to enable easier and more affordable technology insertion in unmanned systems.
FREMONT, Calif. Elma Electronic now offers a 3U 12-slot backplane aligned with The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) Technical Standard 1.0; the updated backplane is intended for high-speed signal processing needed by high-performance mission-critical C5ISR [command, control, computers, communications, cyber, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance] and EW [electronic warfare] systems.
