The only forum supporting tri-service Interoperable Open Architecture initiatives

Armies, Navies, and Air Forces in every modern military have adopted the principles of Interoperable Open Architecture (IOA), which speed up the acquisition and upgrading of platforms, augment the procurement of customized systems, and ultimately reduce through-life costs. NATO’s coalition offices, the European Space Agency and other procurement offices have all embraced this cost-effective strategy to keep up with the pace of technological change in an increasingly challenging economic environment.

Certainly, IOA will happen sooner than you think. And make no mistake, it will happen. Consequently, Interoperable Open Architecture 2016 will bring together subject matter experts, procurement agents and other invested parties from the international community to discuss ongoing projects, offering solutions and guidelines as the open architecture approach continues to gain momentum. The forum will also further the technical discussion on state-of-the-art programmes including LAVOSARII, SoSA languages, CDS, and SBSA amongst others
