Conformance to SOSA™ and What it Means to You

On Demand Webcast with recorded Q&A session

Webinar On Demand

The Sensor Open System Architecture, or SOSA™ Technical Standard applies open-architecture concepts to high-performance defense sensor systems such as radar, electronic warfare, and SIGINT platforms.

The goal of the standard is to design a non-propriety open systems architecture based on DoD-relevant government or commercially available open standards to lower system development costs, and make system reconfigurability and future system upgrades easier and faster, thus improving overall C4ISR capabilities. A key part of the developing technical standard will be how to ensure conformance to the standard is met for hardware or SOSA modules claiming alignment with the Technical Standard.

During this webinar, key SOSA Consortium experts discuss the current status of the Technical Standard, what the 1.0 release means for conforming to the standard, and how you should approach SOSA conformance for your products.

A Q&A session will follow that will include the speakers as well as technical experts from the sponsor companies.
