CHATSWORTH, Calif. Aitech, provider of rugged board and system level solutions for military, aerospace, and space applications, announced it has joined The Open Group Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Consortium. 

Officials claim that the FACE Technical Standard is intended to enable developers to create and deploy a range of applications for use across the entire spectrum of military aviation systems through a common operating environment. 

As a member of the FACE Consortium, Aitech will aim to provide its experience working with open standards and modular architecture and contribute its software design experience to help develop FACE conformant capabilities that will enhance rugged embedded systems and boards for defense and space applications.

According to officials, The Open Group FACE and Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) Consortia are developing standards that enable Modular Open Systems Approaches (MOSA) as specified by the U.S. Department of Defense for new systems development and modification of existing systems.
