Open System Architectures

Why use Open System Architectures?

Modular open-system architectures (MOSA) provide industry-standard technologies and a modular approach to system design that delivers rapid innovation, increased vendor choice and greater interoperability. By leveraging standard form factors, interfaces and protocols, system engineers and designers can leverage standard building blocks, simplifying integration, test, qualification and cost.

CHALLENGE

Constant technology advancements drive system complexity and cost

SOLUTION

A MOSA approach to system architecture maximizes technology reuse to dramatically reduce development time and cost. This open systems approach mitigates obsolescence risk while emphasizing commonality, interoperability and sustainability across platforms and domains.

Reducing Program Risk

Mercury's modular open-system architecture technologies are aligned with the most adopted aerospace and defense industry standards including FACE, SOSA, HOST, CMOSS, VICTORY and MOSA for software, digital, RF and mixed-signal processing. Build your system with reusable modules that span the entire sensor processing chain from signal acquisition to information dissemination.

Leading the way

We are the pioneers of many of today’s modular open systems architectures including OpenVPX, the underlying standard for most modern aerospace and defense embedded system architectures. We work closely with standards bodies to help advance standards development and to ensure they are aligned with our customers' requirements. Mercury components, modules and systems evolve as standards evolve, future-proofing your systems.

Bridging the Gap

Modern aerospace and defense computing platforms demand the most advanced commercially available processing capabilities with security capabilities and product availability well beyond those traditionally offered in the commercial industry. We partner and align our technology roadmap with industry leaders like Intel®, NVIDIA® and Xilinx® to make their technologies profoundly more accessible to aerospace and defense system developers.
