Collins Aerospace and Partners Introduce Open Systems Architecture for Multi-Domain Operations

Collins Aerospace, part of Raytheon Technologies, worked with General Atomics, Palantir Technologies, Parry Labs and Tektonux to jointly demonstrate multiple technologies in an integrated, multi-domain operating scenario.

Collins said on Thursday that he led the integration of various technologies applicable to MDOs for the Open Group FACE and SOSA Consortia technical exchange meeting, which showcased the architecture of open systems.

The integration included Parry Labs’ Stellar Relay mission computing technology designed to enable multiple automation applications in aircraft.

A helicopter cockpit accepted Stellar Relay thanks to Collins’ integration work. The aerospace company integrated a total of 19 different FACE portability units into one helicopter for the event.

Collins also performed a similar demonstration with the same team at the company’s new customer experience center in Huntsville, Alabama.

The Open Group FACE Consortium, a government-industry partnership, aims to promote open systems avionics for a wide range of aircraft platforms. Meanwhile, the SOSA consortium supports the collaborative development of standards and best practices for interoperable sensor systems.
