CMOSS / SOSA VPX System Development Environment

Compatible Operating Systems: Linux, Windows
Supported Architectures: VPX

Streamline your development efforts for faster time to deployment in mission critical systems. This 3U OpenVPX system is a complete test environment platform intended to support OpenVPX application development efforts for systems supporting the hardware and software convergence directives of the Department of Defense. CMOSS refers to the C4ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards initiative. The system enables testing of multi-vendor boards conforming to SOSA & CMOSS profiles. At the heart of the system is Elma’s 12 slot (12 payload and 2 power supply slots) CMOSS backplane. The backplane features high speed RF and optical I/O connectivity and it contains HOST and SOSA VPX slot profiles as developed in conjunction with CERDEC (the Army Communications, Electronics, Research, Development and Engineering Center), the ONR (Office of Naval Research) and AFRL (the Air Force Research Lab). The platform may include an optional a set of OpenVPX modules including computer, networking and network timing modules plus VITA 62 pluggable power supplies to jump start your development activities. Consult with Elma regarding new and emerging VPX modules for your system.
