Join us in person Wednesday, 7 December 2022 in Wachtberg, Germany,
for a one-day workshop on Software Defined Systems topics  including Software Communications Architecture (SCA), Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA™), regional updates and more!

The different versions of the Software Communications Architecture (SCA) standards have been adopted globally for defense communications. Two of the most widely accepted versions are SCA 2.2.2 and SCA 4.1. While both sets of SCA standards and specifications are replicated under the WInnForum’s webpages with the permission of the Joint Tactical Networking Center (JTNC), the corresponding test procedures and tools have not been accessible to the public so far.

In summer 2022, the JTNC has transferred the SCA 2.2.2 test procedures and JTNC Test Application (JTAP) to the Wireless Innovation Forum to share with the SCA development community.

You want to learn more about what exactly is available and how to get access,
please visit us at the one-day workshop!

In addition, the workshop will give you deep insights into ongoing activities within the Software Defined Systems (SDS) Committee like the development of harmonized API facility specifications, the interfacing of the SCA with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA), as well as updates on several regional and multinational programs.

If you are interested in attending the workshop, please register soon under the following link.
There limited capacity. Admission is FREE.

Please note, the registration link will also allow you registering for working group meetings on Monday, 5 December 2022 and Tuesday, 6 December 2022.
