Open Architecture Concepts
A suite of open architecture standards developed by the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center enables the convergence of hardware and software to improve the Army’s command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) and electronic warfare (EW) capabilities. The C4ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards, referred to as CMOSS, allows the communication components of military vehicles to share a common platform. The open architecture applies necessary Army baseline as well as industry standards.
The Consulting Network Incorporated, Middletown, Maryland, is being awarded a $16 million contract modification for software and hardware development, systems engineering and procurement of commercial off-the-shelf products and hardware/software integration, in support of Virginia-class submarines and other submarine/surface ship systems.
