Paper: FACE™ Cross Integration Successes – MB Tools for rapid FACE Integrations – FACE NAVAIR TIM 2017

This paper is a continuance of a case study of the benefits emerging from open system standards, e.g., the FACE™ Technical Standard, HOST, OMS, JCA, SOSA, and the recent innovations of model-based systems engineering (MBSE) practices and tools.  Collectively they bring forth a new age in software portability, software reuse, and the opportunity for rapid integration of multiple interoperable military aviation capabilities and their applications hosted on safe and secure modular avionics architectures.

The trend that is pushing open systems modular capability developments is multiple vendors can develop and submit plug-n-play software and hardware thereby presenting buyers with best-of-breed advanced capabilities and avoiding obsolescence of systems and components.
