The defense acquisition community is looking to reduce costs and development time via open-architecture principles in a practical and consensus-driven way with all three services Air Force, Army, and Navy working together. This tri-service convergence effort set itself up for success since it is driven by the end user in the acquisition community, tied to specific programs. Open architecture initiatives such as the Hardware Open Systems Technologies (HOST) and Modular Open Radio Frequency (RF) Architecture (MORA) are all feeding into the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA). This webcast with Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCM) representative Dr. Ilya Lipkin will cover how these efforts will reduce life cycle costs and enable reuse.
