The future of military computing will, by necessity, involve a lot more commonality and standardization, both within each branch of the armed forces and among the various branches. The Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) is a relatively new concept being driven by the Air Force, Army, Navy, and other government agencies in an effort to develop a unified, technical, open systems approach to complex systems such as radar, EO/IR, signals intelligence (SIGINT), electronic warfare, and communications. SOSA has gained significant traction, with many defense contractors having already demonstrated working hardware and software. This 60-minute webinar from the editors of Aerospace & Defense Technology will highlight some of the most recent technical advances driving SOSA forward.
