LONDON, August 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Open architectures, as we have come to know them, are not necessarily as open as we might like. Whilst new modules can be interchanged and integrated with significantly less hassle than in closed systems, often the open systems still use proprietary code or data dictionaries that prevent third party installation of new sub systems.

Interoperable Open Architecture, taking place in October in London will bring together senior military personnel from the US, UK, Sweden and defence research organisations to learn how open standards are helping to reduce the time and cost of procurement and make procurement truly competitive as well as industry experts to understand how the nature of procurement is changing, how that is going to affect them and how they can position themselves to benefit from this change. (http://www.ioaevent.com)
Key themes of IOA include:
- UK MoD's Land Open Systems Architecture and the US DoD's UAS Control Segment programmes will deliver briefings on how to reduce the time and cost of procurement
- Military Vetronics Organisation and NATO's Research and Technology Organisation will showcase how to improve system and system-of-systems interoperability by adopting and helping to develop, international architectural standards
- The Open Group will brief on how to improve the flexibility of future air assets by involving the Future Airbourne Capability Environment standard
- Workshops hosted by the UK MoD and the Object Management Group on how to improve your own architectural designs and the benefits of open architecture
In the build up to the Interoperable Open Architecture (http://www.ioaevent.com), DefenceIQ conducted an interview with Gordon Hunt, Chief Applications Engineer at RTI, who explains the need for the global community to properly understand the terminology and the drivers in the IOA field. Mr Junt's technical expertise spans embedded systems, distributed real-time systems, robotics, and controls. Access the full complimentary interview at http://www.ioaevent.com.
