The future of standardized defense platforms using MOSA, SOSA and VPX open architectures

Recent trends in the defense industry show there is a convergence towards standardizing electronic systems using open standards. This technical paper provides a better understanding of the benefits and advantages of moving to an open architecture modular power supply system approach and how this modular design supports greater flexibility, scalability, reliability, and faster time to market as compared to non-standardized power design options.
