GOSSRA “straight on target”

GOSSRA is “straight on target” and has closed the second project phase out of three! We now reached the third and last Project Phase.

The GOSSRA-Team closed the second project phase successfully in June 2019. We have now reached the third and last project phase.

The “Extended GOSSRA Architecture Document Draft 2 Version 2” was produced with focus on operational issues, maintenance and logistics, and technical issues. It is the main result of the second project phase and represents a comprehensive architecture, covering all important aspects of a Soldier System. It includes following views (mostly following NAF v3.1): All View (NAV), Summary, Background View (Stakeholder Engagement, Key Soldier Issues, Concepts, Technologies, Business View, Overview on Current Soldier Systems), Capability View (NCV), Operational View (NOV), Service Oriented View (NSOV), Security View, Technical View (NTV), and System View (NSV).

The project is in close contact with the “NATO LCG DSS, C4I&A Working Group” (the body where the standard is intended to be proposed) and the EDA “CapTech Land” and gives regular briefings. Major deliverables and project status were presented to the EDA at the Progress Meeting 2, in Brussels. The meeting was a huge success as we passed milestone two and received positive feedback of the provided deliverables from EDA.

The team is now working on the architecture to be proposed for standardisation and the accompanying formal architecture generated by Enterprise Architecture from SparxSystems Ltd. This architecture will then be validated and demonstrated to Stakeholders in February 2020.

If you are part of the soldier system community, do not miss the Stakeholder Workshop II in Brussels at the 10th October 2019. Registration by email to Erik.Wimmer@Rheinmetall.com is required.

Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to the EU, EDA, GOSSRA-Consortium and to all, who are supporting this project!
