The Intelligent Aerospace take:
October 18, 2019-The SOSA guidelines are expected to reduce development cycle time and cost; reduce systems integration cost and risk; increase commonality and reuse; reduce sustainment and modernization cost; support capability evolution and mitigate obsolescence; enable technology transition; facilitate interoperability; and isolate the effects of change.
One of the chief aims of SOSA is to narrow-down and focus existing industry standards like OpenVPX to promote interoperability among SOSA-based embedded computing and sensor-processing systems, and create a harmonious ecosystem that benefits the U.S. military forces, prime systems integrators, and embedded computing suppliers.
