Our Work

Jovian is teaming with the U.S. Army in the development of the overarching architecture strategy for Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) for the U.S. Army. The MOSA strategy is applicable to multiple platforms across the Future Vertical Lift (FVL) family of systems including Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft Competitive Prototype (FARA CP) and Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA). We are developing architecture products with Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) methods for the future of the U.S. Army platforms. Our architecture products are used across the next generation of platforms within FVL and are also planned to be used across the enduring fleet.

You can learn more about these platforms below:
  1. Future Vertical Lift (FVL) is a family of vertical lift solutions that will deliver next generation capabilities at the tactical, operational and strategic levels.
  2. Learn about Vertical Lift Future across the military and civil space.
  3. Learn about the Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) Competitive Prototype Designs.
  4. Learn about the Future Long Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA).
  5. More on the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) is supporting the U.S. Army future objectives.

Jovian is teaming with University of Alabama, Huntsville (UAH) and the U.S. Army to develop the next generation flight control computer software and hardware architecture for UH-60M Black Hawk using Model-Based System Development (MBSE). The FCC architecture is developed as the next generation solution incorporating Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) and Hardware Open System Technologies (HOST) standards to meet the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) objectives.
