ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (PRWEB) October 18, 2019
Great River Technology (GRT) announces its membership with Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA).
GRT, the global leader in ARINC 818 and HOTLink II™ products, announced their membership with the SOSA consortium further deepening industry-wide relationships and leveraging the proven pedigree of ARINC 818 in the cockpit to other high-speed sensors and components that require a robust, low-latency, high bandwidth transport protocol.
The SOSA Consortium is creating open system reference architectures applicable to military and commercial sensor systems and a business model that balances stakeholder interests. The architectures employ modular design and use widely supported, consensus-based, non-proprietary standards. Originally an initiative under The Open Group FACE™ Consortium, 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.
“Originally, ARINC 818 was intended for cockpit displays. In the last few years, we have seen the protocol adopted for cameras, heads-up displays, enhanced vision and degraded environment displays, and now high-speed EOIR and radar applications. The features that make ARINC 818 good for cockpit displays such as robust error checking, low-overhead and low latency, and high bandwidth, along with a proven pedigree with millions of hours in hundreds of aircraft make it ideal for sensors. We are looking forward to working with SOSA and its members to evaluate if ARINC 818 makes sense to be part of the standard.” says Paul Grunwald, Chief Systems Architect at GRT.
