June 14, 2016

Bohemia, NY, May 10, 2016-- NAI leverages its modular and adaptable COSA architecture providing application-ready systems for harsh air, land and sea environments. These rugged COTS, pre-configured and tested systems allow rapid deployment with less risk, and NO NRE.

NAI’s highly-adaptive, scalable Custom-On-Standard Architecture™ (COSA™), approach optimizes reliability, size, weight and power, as these systems seamlessly integrate with NAI’s field-proven processing, intelligent multifunction I/O, and communications boards that feature the highest packaging density and greatest flexibility of any I/O solution in the industry. Communications and I/O functions can be easily interchanged based on customer requirements without affecting the design of the overall system, resulting in:

  • Reduced design risk
  • Increased design versatility
  • Reduced power consumption
  • Faster integration
  • Higher packaging density
  • Streamlined development resources
  • Overall lower program cost
  • Accelerated time-to-mission

“Our COSA architecture delivers a modular embedded computing platform based on a wide breadth of field proven COTS function modules.  The flexibility and adaptability of this approach allows systems engineers to quickly meet requirements for various rugged applications that range from ground based and naval systems to manned and unmanned aerial payloads in data acquisition, data distribution, vehicle management, actuator control, fire control, targeting and more,” said Lino Massafra, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “NAI has numerous application-ready systems deployed in mission-critical platforms worldwide.”

NAI's application-ready systems support Intel, NXP or ARM-A9 processors and a full suite of I/O and communications functions. They are designed to meet MIL-STD-461F and MIL-STD-810G with support for MIL-STD-1275D & MIL-STD-704A with 50ms holdup.
