Support for MOSA initiatives is being accelerated, thanks to modular open standard architectures such as SOSA and MORA. Adoption helps streamline the process of updating adaptive and scalable general computing elements for the warfighter; specifically, support for avionics and wind RF systems is even more accessible.

The Modular Open Radio Architecture (MORA) accelerates the development of open standards-based RF and microwave modules that can be used in systems enabled by standards-based CMOSS and SOSA intended for ground vehicles. MORA uses Vehicular Integration for C5ISR/EW Interoperability (VICTORY) interfaces, MORA compliant for VICTORY Data Bus (VBD) and MORA Low Latency Bus (ML2B) for data sharing.

This webinar brings together experts in the design and implementation of hardware and software components that can be used to develop and deploy RF designs in field applications, including adaptive reuse of these modular components. Design considerations extend from the hull platforms designed to support the CMOSS vehicle footprints (CMFF & SAVE), to the payload cards that support mission-specific functionality, to the software and firmware elements that enable the system to be ready for MORA compliant RF deployment. The session will conclude with an interactive question and answer period.
