SOSA Consortium welcomes Aitech to develop interoperable military techNews
September 16, 2020
CHATSWORTH, Calif. Aitech Systems, provider of rugged board and system level solutions for military, aerospace, and space applications, has joined The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) Consortium. With the goal of creating a common framework for transitioning sensor systems to an open systems architecture, the SOSA Consortium is based on key interfaces and open standards established by an industry-government consensus.
By joining the SOSA Consortium, Aitech will contribute its rugged plug-in modules and systems design expertise to help define desired capabilities in Modular Open Systems Approaches (MOSA).
The development of SOSA aligned products will aim to accelerate the development of embedded computing technologies, including more advanced cybersecurity, improved SWaP-C, and other capabilities that defense organizations need to build ever more capable equipment.
According to the company, Aitech will provide customers with both hardware and software solutions that are SOSA-aligned for use in the next generation of defense programs. Building to a common standard is intended to allow the company to focus on enhancing the functionality of its defense products, and less on equipment interoperability or integration issues. Aitech will focus on plug-in modules, inter-module interactions, security, and small form factors, in addition to other technology platforms that will be evaluated for future implementations.
