Army in investigating advanced open-system architecture
technologies and architectural centric model-based engineering capabilities necessary to achieve cost-effective system design and certification for future mission equipment packages (MEPs).

HP will supply a complete hardware platform for PNB's transition from a combined mainframe and minicomputer (AS/400) environment toward a standard, open-system architecture
. The architecture is based on HP Integrity Superdome servers running HP-UX 11i on new Dual-Core Intel Itanium 2 9000 Series processors.
C4I-Connect is based upon an open-system architecture
that allows the incorporation of specific user requirements easily and without constraints.
ATEasy 4.0, the latest version of the Geotest-Marvin Test Systems open-system architecture
test development software and test executive, is the victor in the Software category.
It has a single, scalable open-system architecture
with the capacity to effectively integrate all major building systems--including security, HVAC, fire/life safety, lighting, power monitoring, critical environments, and process control- into one building management system.
Bob Gabel, director of marketing at Rockwell Collins, said that open-system architecture
is driving the aircraft market to use much more software.
"Our open-system architecture
approach benefits from the Boeing investment in the Bold Stroke avionics technology, synergy with our C-17 Globemaster III avionics system, and our proven large-scale avionics integration experience," Spong says.
The Integrated Combat Management System (ICMS) to be installed is an open-system architecture
based on the Thales TACTICOS CMS family.
This open-system architecture
enhances the application with ActiveX controls, spreadsheets, databases, word processors, and web browsers.
It features enhancements to the avionics system, including enablers for an open-system architecture
. The vehicle will be used to evaluate improved operational capabilities before production vehicles are delivered.
Boeing will also replace the mission computing system with an open-system architecture
in an effort to make future upgrades easier and less costly.
