On-Demand: Applying a MOSA Strategy Across Multiple Domains

Aired February 22, 2023

Creating a MOSA ecosystem requires open architectures like SOSA, FACE or CMOSS to be applied across all domains such as air, sea, land, space, cyber and spectrum. This ecosystem enables the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to deploy capabilities more quickly to open systems while reducing long-term lifecycle costs and reducing integration times. A cross-domain MOSA approach must balance the open architecture demands with requirements which demand custom and expensive solutions.

This session details how MOSA can be implemented across multiple domains to balance the tradeoffs between costs and technology investments in open architectures.
