Collins Mosarc avionics for Future Vertical Lift

As an industry leader we provide:

Open and modular architecture

Bounded and deterministic performance with multi-level security and protection from security vulnerabilities.

Scalabilty

Bounded and deterministic performance with multi-level security and protection from security vulnerabilities.

Configurability

Reusable building blocks allow operators to rapidly adapt the configuration of deployed solutions to accommodate different safety and mission-critical systems.

Affordability

Reusable building blocks allow operators to rapidly adapt the configuration of deployed solutions to accommodate different safety and mission-critical systems.

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.

Features & benefits
