COSA® architecture (Configurable Open Systems Architecture™)

One of the keys to NAI’s success has been enabling their customers to leverage NAI’s modular and adaptable COSA® architecture, providing them with application-ready systems for harsh air, land and sea environments plagued by, for example:

  • Shock and vibration
  • Extreme temperature, humidity/wetness
  • Corrosion or abrasion
  • Electromagnetic interference
  • Low pressure/altitude
  • Dust

COSA® gives NAI customers the most modular, agile and rugged COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) portfolio of embedded smart modules, I/O boards, single-board computers, power supplies and ruggedized systems on the market. All are pre-engineered to work together today—and can be easily changed, reused or re-purposed down the road. NAI has used FPGAs and SoCs to create smart modules that enable their customers to rapidly create configurable mission systems—while reducing or eliminating SBC overhead.

COTS systems

NAI’s rugged COTS, pre-configured and tested systems are unequalled and allow rapid deployment with less risk, and no NRE (non-recurring engineering). They are also SWaP optimized—striking a fine balance between size, weight, and power that gives users the edge in highly competitive real-world scenarios.
