The long-standing goal at North Atlantic Industries (NAI) is to accelerate your time-to-mission—to get you to market faster. NAI’s COSA technology, also known as “Configurable Open Systems Architecture” technology, helps you do just that. In a distributed, intelligent, software-driven architecture that allows you to rethink the way you engineer power-critical and I/O-intensive mission systems, COSA satisfies an impressive range of complex and time-critical requirements.
How NAI’s COSA technology works:
- Select I/O boards, single board computers, power supplies or rugged systems to meet your requirements.
- Customize it in modular fashion, selecting from more than 100 available, high-density, fully tested I/O, communications, measurement and simulation smart function modules.
- Leverage NAI’s free software libraries, source-code and comprehensive API to jump-start development and speed your time to test.
- Easily adjust board configuration to add or swap functional capabilities if requirements change.
NAI’s COSA technology works by providing a framework for building software systems that are composed of independent software components, or “modules.” These modules can be configured and combined in various ways to create a customized software solution that meets specific requirements.
The COSA framework provides a set of standard interfaces and protocols that allow the modules to communicate and interact with each other, regardless of the programming language or platform on which they are implemented. This allows for greater flexibility in choosing and integrating different software components, and enables the creation of highly configurable and adaptable software systems.
COSA technology applications include industrial control systems, military systems, and telecommunications networks. It is designed to be highly modular, scalable, and adaptable to changing requirements, making it an attractive solution for complex and dynamic software systems.
