Mosarc, open systems architecture, future avionics ready

Mosarc’s revolutionary approach to avionics is based on display, network, computing, and software building blocks that invite customization to enable fleets to integrate best-in-class technology from across the industry- supporting current and future rotary wing fleets at the highest level. For rapid avionics integration, collaboration, and innovation, look to Mosarc.

As an industry leader we provide:

Mosarc can be implemented quickly and efficiently, minimizing life-cycle costs while eliminating obsolescence challenges.

Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)

Our open systems approach incorporates the technical and business strategies to provide systems that are well supported by Collins Aerospace and third-party embedded system providers from aviation and associated industries.

This approach uses the incremental acceptance process as defined in DO-­297, which enables integration and acceptance of new components into a deployed Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) system, as well as maintenance of existing components, without the need for re-acceptance efforts.

In addition, our leadership in groups such as the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Consortium provides us with unique open systems expertise and ensures we are on the forefront of open systems development and integration.
