  2. 2. pre conference WorKShopS: 26th october 2011WORKSHOP A: 9:00 - 11:30A Technical Assessment of Open Architecture Systems for Military UseLed By: Dr. Douglas C. Schmidt, Deputy Director, Research, and Chief technology Officer,Software Engineering institute, Carnegie Mellon Universitythe goal of employing Open Architecture systems for military use is to to foster competition and innovation to improve performanceand affordability via the use of modular designs, enabling public access to design specifications, reusing software design documentationand implementation artifacts, mandating common interface standards, and achieving seamless interoperability between systemhardware and software applications. At the heart of Open Architecture systems are architectural concepts, services, and tools thatare maturing as standards-based, commercial-off-the-shelf (COtS) frameworks, component-based and service-oriented middleware,and model-driven engineering technologies. Despite substantial advances in these technologies during the past decade, however, keychallenges must be addressed before we can affordable and dependably build next-generation Open Architecture systems.This workshop will therefore:• Provide a survey of key characteristics that make architectures “open”• Examine the evolution of standards and enabling technologies that are relevant for open architectures• Summarize new challenges for open architecture systems arising from growth of scale, complexity, and expanded threat spectrum• Evaluate strategies for overcoming these challenges, as well as limitations with existing open architecture efforts• Review examples from the avionics and shipboard computing domains that illustrate key pointsWORKSHOP B: 12:30 - 14:30Developing Open Systems ArchitectureLed By: Mr Simon Masley, MOD DE&S Land Open systems Architecture Lead, UK MoDthis workshop is based on our experience of implementing open system architecture in the land sector of MOD. it will be of use to thoseseeking to work with the MOD, both customers and suppliers, and for those organisations wanting to implement their own open systemarchitectures. it will cover what an open system architecture is, how it might be useful to you and look at benefits and risks. it will helpyou to work through the context in which you want to implement an open system architecture before taking you through some of thefactors you need to consider during implementation. We will then summarise and discuss the ‘take homes’. it will require participationfrom all and help you situate open systems in your own particular context. At the end of it, we hope you will have a clear idea of what isinvolved in going down this route.Content: 3 Understanding your context 4 Doing Open Systems Architecture1 Setting the scene - Acquisition model - Vision- introductions and outline of the workshop - Governance - Principles- Why MOD has done what it has - Architectures and standards - Stakeholders /investment partners- Getting to grips with the language - technology, people and process - Cost Benefit Analysis2 Why Open Systems - is your timing right? - Safety and Security- Are you sure you know? - What about your legacy systems? - Buy in and education- Benefits 5 Summary and Take Homes Download free interviews, podcasts and articles at www.IOAevent.comABOUT DEFENCE IQ Tel: +44(0)207 368 9300 Email: Defence Iq is an authoritative news source for high quality and exclusive commentary and analysis on global defence and military-related topics.
