Curtiss-Wright and Annapolis Micro Systems join forces to develop SOSA-aligned embedded computing products

Oct. 18, 2021
Collaboration aims to provide 3U and 6U OpenVPX modules to support designers of demanding applications like EW, SIGINT, and radar processing.

ASHBURN, Va. – Two U.S. embedded computing companies are joining forces to offer technology aligned with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) standard for aerospace and defense applications.

The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., and Annapolis Micro Systems Inc. in Annapolis, Md., will work together to develop SOSA-aligned solutions for embedded computing applications.

Both companies will qualify products for interoperability based on the Open Group SOSA standard. The partnership combines Curtiss-Wright's expertise in Modular Open System Approach (MOSA) single-board computers and digital signal processor (DSP) engines with the Annapolis Micro Systems expertise in FPGA boards and switch modules capable of 100 Gigabit Ethernet.

The collaboration aims to simplify and speed user ability to access and integrate 3U and 6U OpenVPX modules from the two companies to support designers of demanding compute-intensive applications such as electronic warfare (EW), radar processing, and signals intelligence (SIGINT).
