The industry workshop on Open System Architecture Standardisation for Vehicle Mission Systems (LAVOSAR) successfully took place on 25 June 2013. Forty participants from ten countries and 35 organisations (industry and government) attended and discussed the presented approach to an Open System Architecture for military vehicle mission systems. The workshop was a deliverable of the LAVOSAR study funded by the EDA.
The LAVOSAR study team introduced the currently ongoing study which started in February 2013 and which will finish in November 2013. Intermediate work results on “Standardisation and Business Case”, “Technologies” and first results on the “Architecture” were presented and discussed. Extracts from the presentations can be downloaded below.
The topic generated substantial interest and is regarded as key for a comprehensive implementation of information technology in military vehicles resulting in drastic increase in performance and flexibility whilst, at the same time, achieving cost savings for procurement and especially for maintenance and logistics.
The lively and fruitful discussions provided important feedback to the LAVOSAR study and will be integrated into the ongoing work. The minutes of the workshop are accessible here below.
