UK MoD Embarks on Open Architecture Strategy for Defence Procurement

Posted: 09/05/2011
Open Architecture is not a new concept in defence production. In fact, the US Virginia Class submarine planning and development process, alongside the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) are two prominent US projects benefitting from this approach. The UK's Generic Vehicle Architecture is another prime example. Professor Michael Henshaw has some unique perspective on these projects. He is Professor of Systems Engineering at Loughborough University and leader of the Engineering Systems of Systems (EsoS) Research Group. He is also directly involved in the UK's efforts to incorporate open architecture in legacy and next generation defence systems. This full length interview provides some remarkable insight into why OA is the sign of things to come.
