Industry Perspective on CMOSS for Communications Systems

In order to keep the tactical edge sharp for today's military, the Joint Services established unique Modular Open Systems Architectures (MOSA) like C5ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS), Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE), Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA™), and Open Mission System (OMS).

Future Vertical Lift Digital Backbone: Navigating Technology and Implementation Details

While the US Army Future Vertical Lift (FVL) programs have identified several key tenets that their airborne weapon systems need to ensure they maintain asymmetric advantage, there continues to be integration issues.

Saturn Comparison of Saturn and Havequick

This whitepaper offers a direct comparison of the HAVEQUICK waveform program and the SATURN waveform program. It compares everything from modulation, to waveform type, to data characteristics.

Defining an Open Systems Approach for the Defense Community

With so many open systems standards developed, there is confusion in the defense community. To address these issues and make a recommendation on a future approach, Collins Aerospace, who has been leveraging an open systems approach for the past two decades, offers clarity and digs deeper into what an open systems approach means for the defense community in a new whitepaper titled “Defining an Open Systems Approach for the Defense Community.

PNT Threat Environments

Warfighters are fighting in a more contested and congested environment than ever and are combatting increasingly sophisticated adversaries every day. This resource rethinks Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) and its role in “A Day without Space” scenario.

Four Generations of ALE

This paper digs into Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) protocols, which are employed in the field to make HF Radio Frequency (RF) connectivity as simple as dialing a phone number and offers a basic understanding of the physics involved in HF communication.
