Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) is a COTS-based open standards initiative that provides reconfigurable, upgradable, and cost-effective embedded computing capabilities in deployed platforms across all major U.S. military branches. Using OpenVPX as its basis, SOSA ensures interoperability, improved subsystem SWaP-C, and rapid technology upgrades.Annapolis Micro Systems was an early adopter of the modular open standards model for COTS product development, and is a dedicated SOSA contributor and member.
