Addressing Common COTS Misconceptions


While the COTS approach to rugged deployed system design for defense and aerospace applications is generally well understood and widely embraced, there remain some areas in which customers may harbor misconceptions about the ability of COTS products and vendors to satisfy certain technical or program management requirements. Some of these lingering misconceptions relate to Reliability & Environmental and Performance & Functionality aspects of COTS technology, as well as the ability of COTS vendors to provide the Program Management required to support the Statement of Work (SOW), and to address the challenge of Lead-Free Risk Reduction. For each of these misconceptions there are strong refutations, based on research, experience, and qualification that directly address and assuage the concerns of customers. Explore these common misconceptions and how they can be addressed by downloading the white paper.
