Curtiss-Wright Solutions Aligned to the SOSA™ Technical Standard

SOSA memberRugged, deployable systems developed to Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) standards are becoming increasingly important in the defense industry – so much so that the U.S. military’s 2019 tri-services memo has explicitly mandated that “MOSA supporting standards should be included in all requirements, programming, and development activities for future weapon system modifications and new start development programs to the maximum extent possible.”

Curtiss-Wright’s participation in the development of open standards, such as The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) Technical Standard, ensures our products will be ready to meet future requirements, alleviate interoperability challenges, and deliver a variety of benefits to mission-critical C5ISR systems.

Our innovative products aligned with the SOSA Technical Standard provide the hardware foundation for next-generation defense capabilities, like machine learning and artificial intelligence. And our system integration experts are ready to provide the expertise and services to bring your system to market even faster.
