The arrival of Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA)Technical Standard 1.0 means a realization of the efforts of not only the Tri-Services (Air Force, Army, Navy), but also industry and academia in bringing open architecture concepts to electronic warfare, radar, SIGINT, and other mission-critical military applications. The release of 1.0 (date TBD) follows upon the release of SOSA Technical Standard Snapshot 3, which continued to define the SOSA functions and behaviors of the modules and associated interfaces.

This webcast featuring industry experts will discuss how Version 1.0 affects requirements and technology development for warfighters’ radar and electronic warfare systems from an embedded hardware and software perspective.
