Douglas Schmidt, Chief Technology Officer at the Software Engineering Institute and one of 18 thought leaders on the speaker panel, commented:
“We, as a community, need to figure out how we can decompose these monolithic business and technical domains that we’ve dealt with in the past into much more manageable and individually computable elements via economic and value-based open software architectures that allow you to be able to get [defence equipment] out more quickly and to do it in a way that’s going to be interoperable, trustworthy and lower the total ownership cost.”
The conference is sponsored by several of the world’s leading providers of middleware and interoperability solutions, including FNSS Savunma Sistemleri A.S., RTI, Thales, Twin Oaks Computing Ltd., Kongsberg Integrated Tactical Systems, Themis and Creative Electronic Systems.
