SOSA & VITA: Working Together for Next-Gen Defense Systems

by Rodger Hosking Vice President/Co-Founder, Pentek, Inc.

The SOSA™ (Sensor Open Systems Architecture) Consortium is developing common open standards for designing, building, and deploying hardware, software, and firmware components of new military electronic systems. SOSA contributing members are U.S. government organizations including the U.S. DoD, Army, Navy, and Air Force, as well as key representatives from industry and universities.

SOSA adopts the most appropriate subsets of existing open standards to form a multi-purpose backbone of building blocks for current and future embedded systems for Radar, EO/IR, SIGINT, EW, and communications.

After independently developing standards in response to DoD MOSA objectives, each of the three services joined the SOSA Consortium to develop a unified standard
After independently developing standards in response to U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) objectives, each of the three services joined the SOSA Consortium to develop a unified standard.


Objectives include vendor interoperability, lower procurement costs, easier new technology upgrades, quicker reaction to new requirements, and longer life cycles.

Because the emerging SOSA hardware standard draws primarily from OpenVPX and other related VITA standards, the new technologies, topologies, and environmental requirements critical to meeting SOSA objectives must be supported by extensions to these VITA standards.

This article is an overview of the SOSA and VITA organizations and how they interact, along with the challenges, successful strategies, and illustrative examples.

Pentek Launches Revolutionary ArchiTek FPGA Development Suite for Talon Recorders

Pentek Launches Revolutionary ArchiTek FPGA Development Suite for Talon Recorders

Pentek recently announced its ArchiTek™ FPGA Development Suite, a revolutionary product for adding custom IP to select Pentek Talon® recording systems. ArchiTek is a comprehensive development environment that enables engineers to add FPGA IP to recording systems, such as threshold detection, spectral filtering, digital down-conversion, signal classification, demodulation and many other digital signal processing techniques.



Focus On: Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA)

Focus On Sensor Open Systems Architecture SOSA

Learn more about SOSA™ by downloading this eBook today! This SOSA eBook holds a compilation of technical articles regarding the Sensor Open Standards Architecture (SOSA).

SOSA is chartered with creating a common framework for transitioning sensor systems to an open-systems architecture, based on key interfaces and best practices established by industry-government consensus. The benefits of this architecture include improved interoperability, as well as reduced development time, deployment and costs.
