I am delighted to announce that the Organisers of Aerospace Tech Week have agreed and created an EXCLUSIVE Open Group FACE™ Consortium Pavilion area for exhibiting FACE solutions within AVIONICS in AEROSPACE TECH WEEK 2020. This is the first public FACE event in Europe. The FACE Pavilion is very affordable and we recommend our members to consider participation. ONLY FACE members (see below) can exhibit in the PAVILION.
This is a very important event for the FACE Technical Standard and Business Approach. This unique event expands our capabilities into NATO countries and strengthens our relationships with our global coalition partners. Our members presence will help promote our hard work over the last nine years.
Chip Downing, RTI, Senior Market Development Director and Chair, FACE Business Working Group.
MEMBERS should contact AMANDA KEVAN ASAP if interested in talking one of the booths but spaces are limited and available on a first come first served basis.
The Open Group Future Airborne Capability Environment Consortium is a government and industry partnership to define an open avionics environment for all military airborne platform types. The FACE™ Consortium is a vendor-neutral forum that provides standardized approaches for using open standards with avionics systems. The FACE Consortium works to develop and consolidate the open standards, best practices, guidance documents and business models to achieve these objectives:
- Standardized approaches for using open standards within avionics systems
- Lower implementation costs of FACE systems
- Standards that support a robust architecture and enable quality software development
- The use of standard interfaces that will lead to reuse of capabilities
- Portability of applications across multiple FACE systems and vendors
- Procurement of FACE conformant products
- More capabilities reaching the warfighter faster
- Innovation and competition within the avionics industry
The FACE Technical Standard is the open avionics standard for making military computing operations more robust, interoperable, portable and secure. The standard enables developers to create and deploy a wide catalog of applications for use across the entire spectrum of military aviation systems through a common operating environment. The latest edition of the standard further promotes application interoperability and portability with enhanced requirements for exchanging data among FACE components and emphasis on defining common language requirements for the standard.
