Interoperability and Open Architectures

Neya Systems fully supports a variety of interoperability and open architecture efforts. We firmly believe in the principles of open architecture, and this support runs through our capability development efforts and programs. Supporting open interfaces makes it easier to integrate our unique capabilities, including mission management, behavior orchestration, and advanced mobility planning, into your existing legacy systems.

Our support for interoperability efforts includes the following:

SAE AS-4 “JAUS”

Neya Systems personnel have more than fifteen years of experience working with the Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS). JAUS is standardized message set for internal and external communication between elements in an unmanned system. It incorporates a service-based, message-passing architecture specifying data formats and protocols that promote interoperability and maintainability. The latest JAUS standards are published by the AS-4 Committee under SAE. JAUS is not a software architecture or implementation that restricts ingenuity; rather it’s an enabler that allows vendors to focus on technical innovation while simplifying integration with existing and future systems. In addition, it serves as the interoperability backbone in several on-going DoD acquisition efforts, including the Navy’s Advanced EOD Robotics System (AEODRS) and the RS-JPO Interoperabilty Profile (IOP).

RS-JPO Interoperability Profiles

Neya Systems personnel provide active support for the RS-JPO Interoperability Profiles (IOP). The IOP logical architecture leverages SAE-AS4, and our personnel have led and supported a variety of task groups, including Comms, Payload, Platform, Access Control, and Autonomy. We are also integrating the IOP into our Mission Management system to enable comprehensive orchestration and coordination of multiple IOP compliant UGV platforms.

UAS Control Segment Architecture (UCS)

Neya Systems supports the UAS Control Segment Architecture. The UCS Architecture is a functional decomposition of current and planned Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Ground Control Stations. UCS is developed using service oriented architecture principles.

Neya Systems continues to support the growing UCS Community through its latest release of the UxSDK for UCS. This version supports UCS Version 3.4, which is provided by SAE AS4-UCS. UxSDK allows software developers to generate DDS IDD and full C++ and Java software interfaces compliant to the latest UCS model. In addition, it includes model import and export tools to allow developers and system engineers to rapidly extend the UCS model to support additional services or entire new domains.

UxSDK is being used by multiple government and commercial organizations to integrate legacy software into the UCS architecture and develop new capabilities.
