Elma’s Successful Demonstrations of SOSA Aligned Systems Emphasize Significant Growth in Open Standard Ecosystem

Oct. 1, 2022

Multiple partner demos set for viewing at AUSA 2022


·     Six demonstrations representing the SOSA ecosystem

·      Five industry partners across three live demonstrations

·      Different development platforms based on application

·      Supporting rapid system development using open standards

Fremont, Calif., October 2022 – Elma Electronic recently demonstrated several successful examples of SOSA aligned platforms that incorporate multiple industry partner products, showcasing the progress and success that open standards are achieving to support true innovations of the Department of Defense's (DoD) directive of a modular open standards approach (MOSA).

These multi-partner platform initiatives help to show how open standards, and in particular SOSA, are helping to accelerate system development, thereby meeting the goals of faster time to deployment. Available for viewing during AUSA 2022 are the following live demonstrations aligned to the SOSA Technical Standard 1.0:

·      A CompacFrame development platform with 10, 40 & 100 Gb Ethernet throughput for true high-speed Ethernet performance across the entire system

·      AI-based object detection and recognition platform showing the power of the SOSA architecture to perform very fast processing of streaming video as well as enable deep learning through NVIDIA technology

·      A rugged CMOSS ATR platform supporting VICTORY and MORA architectures, with a standard A-kit vehicle envelope (SAVE) mounting tray and a 12-slot 3U  OpenVPX backplane

Some of the demos, which debuted at the 2022 FACE & SOSA Technical Interchange Meeting in September, will also be on display during the AOC 2022 show, from October 25-27, in Interface Concept’s Booth #107.  Other successful SOSA aligned demonstrations that have been developed with Elma and its partners include a VITA 48.8 air flow-through development platform and a 12-slot E-Frame platform that greatly accelerates EW and SIGINT system development.

Partner companies included across the different demonstrations include Antara Teknik, Behlman Electronics, Concurrent Technologies, EIZO Rugged Solutions, Interface Concept, Kontron and Spectranetix.

Also on hand at AUSA will be prototypes of a new SOSA aligned VNX+ card and backplane. VNX+ (VITA 90) is the emerging open hardware standards for smaller footprint applications where VPX is not small enough and ruggedization is still required
