SOSA’s Impact on OpenVPX Technology


The OpenVPX Systems Specification, which improves the interoperability of COTS 3U and 6U VPX boards through the implementation of predefined system topologies, has been in existence for a decade and has had a major impact on military computing. SOSA (Sensor Open Systems Architecture), as a major new initiative, has driven changes and extended OpenVPX. This 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Aerospace & Defense Technology looks at some of the specification's most significant technical milestones and what advances are being worked on today to ensure its continued implementation in the future.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
