To dramatically reduce defense costs, Open Architecture (OA) offers a vision of complex systems of systems built from composable, replaceable modules.
From its origins with the Navy's OA program for ship systems nearly 10 years ago, this design philosophy is spreading to military programs worldwide, including the the Future Architecture Computing Environment (FACE) for avionics, the Unmanned Air Segment Control Segment (UCS) for ground stations, the Army's Common Operating Environment (COE) and the UK's Generic Vehicle Architecture (GVA). These programs are defining technology and acquisition policy for the next generation of defense systems.
