SOSA and VPX - Blog

April 30, 2020
EVENT HORIZON BLOG: I've been heavily involved in a standards effort called the Sensor Open Systems Architecture, or SOSA. SOSA is interesting because it’s a government/industry consortium formed with the goal to create a hardware/software standard aimed at making it much easier to integrate and maintain defense sensor systems. As it is a huge undertaking with something like 70 organizations participating and usually upwards to 150 people at each semi-monthly face-to-face, there is a lot to say about SOSA. Today I'll discuss VPX and SOSA, but I’ll be touching on different aspects of SOSA over the coming months as there is far too much to tackle in a single blog post.

Applying deep learning techniques to expand defense capabilities - Story

August 03, 2018
Leveraging advanced data center computing techniques holds the promise of delivering powerful ways to solve complex defense mission challenges. Deep learning is an increasingly popular technique that can be used to process very large data sets. As the goals for defense systems move in the direction of greater autonomy, deep learning techniques that were once too tough for more traditional processing technologies can now be supported.
