UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. - Oct. 15, 2019 - PRLog -- Pentek, Inc, Herrick Technology Laboratories. and Kontron, have developed products aligned with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA™) Technical Standard that are used in a new 3U VPX demonstrator system designed to illustrate the capabilities of open systems architectures. This 3U VPX system is ideal for electronic warfare (EW), SIGINT, radar and communications applications. The flight-qualified chassis utilizes open architecture modules, from multiple suppliers, for a complete functional demonstration system.

"Herrick Technology Laboratories, Inc. of Germantown, MD, and another major U.S. system integrator have received shipments of the Kontron VX305C-40G SOSA aligned SBC for U.S. defense community applications," said Mark Littlefield, Kontron's vertical product manager for Defense and SOSA standard contributor. He added, "Herrick has integrated this SBC with a Model 71813 XMC board from Pentek which provides customizable I/O signal status and control for their new SOSA C4ISR demonstrator system for the U.S. Army."

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

The SOSA approach establishes guidelines for Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems. The objective is to allow flexibility in the selection and acquisition of sensors and subsystems that provide sensor data collection, processing, exploitation, communication and related functions over the full life cycle of the C4ISR system.
