In early 2019, Air Force, Army, and Navy leadership issued a joint memo mandating that the U.S. military use a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) for new program designs and refreshes, calling MOSA a “warfighting imperative.” Today, MOSA strategies are changing U.S. military acquisition and procurement strategies as MOSA initiatives like FACE, SOSA, CMOSS, and others become system requirements across multiple domains – air, land, sea, space, and spectrum.

Powered by Military Embedded Systems, the MOSA Virtual Summit is designed to drive awareness and thought leadership around MOSA initiatives like the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) and the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) and aims to study how they impact signal-processing, software, hardware, AI, and RF designs.

When applying MOSA to crewed and uncrewed military aviation platforms, strategies must be developed for avionics systems, navigation, security, weapons systems, and interoperability with other standards. The most impactful of these strategies has been the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Technical Standard, which enables the reuse of software elements across multiple avionics platforms. This session will both explore how MOSA strategies like FACE improve avionics platforms in military aircraft and relate how MOSA strategies can be applied throughout development, certification, and procurement.

Military sensor systems for command, control, computers, communications, cyber, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C5ISR), electronic warfare (EW), signals intelligence (SIGINT), radar, etc., must be able to adapt more quickly than ever before as adversarial threats become increasingly complex. MOSA strategies for these sensor systems will also be critical to enabling the U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) effort, which enables delivery of real-time situational awareness data to Joint Force commanders regardless of the military domain or defense supplier. This session will cover how MOSA efforts like the Sensor Open Systems Architecture, edition 1.0 (SOSA); (C5ISR)/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS); and others enable faster and more efficient adaptation of commercial RF, signal- processing, and AI innovations for military sensor systems.

MOSA is not just about open architectures like SOSA, FACE, or CMOSS, but it also involves how those initiatives and standards can be applied across all domains – air, sea, land, space, cyber, and spectrum – to create a MOSA ecosystem. Such an ecosystem enables the DoD to deploy capability more quickly to the warfighter while also reducing the long-term life cycle cost of components and reducing integration times. A cross-domain MOSA approach must balance the open architecture demands with requirements that demand custom – often expensive –solutions. This session covers how MOSA can be implemented across multiple domains in a cost-effective way that balances the tradeoffs between cost and technology investment in open architectures such as SOSA and CMOSS.
