Military Embedded Systems
The Department of Defense (DoD) continues to embrace open architecture designs and open standards to enable more commonality in military sensor systems, vehicle electronics, radar, electronic warfare, and others. This was quite evident during the Embedded Tech Trends (ETT) conference last week in Austin, Texas, where representatives of the Navy and Air Force updated the attendees on updates to standard initiatives such as Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) and Hardware Open Systems Technology (HOST). In this podcast with Jerry Gipper, architect of ETT and Executive Director of VITA, he discusses the aspects of these different DoD initiatives, the passion of the engineering community behind them, also provides updates on VITA standards initiatives.
