NEWARK, DEL. (August 11, 2023) W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) will present a new Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) technical paper at the Ground Vehicle Systems Engineering & Technology Symposium & Modernization Update (GVSETS) on Tuesday, August 15, in Novi, Mich. 

The new technical paper, written by Gore subject matter experts, discusses MOSA and how it’s being implemented to transform the way future military equipment is designed, developed, integrated and sustained. 

At GVSETS this week, Gore experts will present the paper to conference attendees. 

In the paper, Gore points out that a robust digital backbone must have an equally robust interconnect architecture with performance margin to overcome signal degradation and reduce the total cost of ownership needed to make MOSA a reality. An interconnect architecture will be vital to maintain the highest-performing systems and execute the most demanding missions. 

“With the unpredictable global threat landscape, the defense ecosystem must be more forward-looking as they write specifications, especially for interconnects,” said Jeff Woods, Market Development-Americas, Aerospace & Defense, with Gore. “It means executing detailed modeling and digital systems engineering trades to ensure critical size, weight, power, reliability and performance metrics are factored in as vital pieces of the MOSA puzzle. MOSA success is more than the boxes and subsystems.” 

The presentation is scheduled for 10:50 a.m., during the MOSA technical session at GVSETS. For more information, visit Gore at booth #228.
