Five years have passed since 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 initiatives 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), the C5ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS), and the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) and aims to study how they impact signal-processing, software, hardware, AI, and RF designs.

As adversarial threats continue to become more complex, U.S. military electronic warfare (EW) and signal intelligence (SIGINT) solutions must be able to adapt more quickly. For decades, these systems have been closed architectures based on proprietary system and component designs, all of which have proved costly over time. That situation is changing however, most notably with the publication of the Sensor Open Systems Architecture, edition 1.0 (SOSA), which brings commonality to sensor systems through key interfaces and open standards established by industry/government consensus. Other MOSA approaches have also impacted SOSA and EW designs, such as the Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR)/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS); as well as the Modular Open RF Architecture (MORA), which has its design roots in the VICTORY [Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability] architecture. This session details how open architectures can enable EW and SIGINT designers to leverage the best of commercial RF, signal processing, and AI innovations to field technology more quickly and more affordably over the life of the system.

The edge has many meanings in the high-tech world, but in the military the edge most often refers to where one engages the adversary, whether in the air, cyberspace, the spectrum, etc. The edge is also is defined as where C5ISR sensors collect the data and where that data needs to be processed. From the battle- commander’s point of view, all deployed platforms and sensors are all edge devices. Enabling MOSA at the edge involves the ways in which open architecture initiatives and open standards can be applied across all domains – air, sea, land, space, cyber, and spectrum – to create a MOSA ecosystem with high-performance processing as close to the sensor as possible. This session covers how MOSA enables smart sensor processing at the edge, regardless of domain, through the lens of open architectures and standards.

MOSA strategies for military aviation platforms encompass not just flight avionics but also navigation, security, weapons systems, and more. They also enable interoperability across platforms - enabling reuse of software and hardware components from one helicopter avionics system to another, for example. The most well-known MOSA aviation initiative is 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.
