Great River Technology Joins the SOSA Consortium

Great River Technology has joined The Open Group SOSA Consortium and is excited to contribute its expertise in avionics, sensors, and high-speed video technologies. SOSA offers considerable advantages in performance, scalability and flexibility for military sensor systems. Its extensive experience and knowledge of the ARINC 818 avionics protocol together with all the most common analog and digital video protocols will be an asset to the Consortium, helping to drive innovation and collaboration in sensor systems.

What is SOSA?

SOSA stands for Sensor Open Systems Architecture. “The SOSA Consortium enables government and industry to collaboratively develop open standards and best practices to enable, enhance and accelerate the deployment of affordable, capable, interoperable sensor systems.” The SOSA Consortium’s efforts will encourage innovation while lowering costs and delivering new capabilities faster by providing a non-propriety open systems architecture.

Open Architectures Advancing in Aerospace

Great River Technology says it has a team of experts ready and willing to collaborate and provide guidance related to ARINC 818, high-speed video protocols, sensor interfacing and open architectures. It says it has consistently “driven aerospace innovation in high resolution, low-latency mission critical video and sensor systems.” As part of SOSA, the company says it will be able to leverage those resources even more effectively, offering comprehensive services that can help advance the aerospace industry.
