Key Goals of HOST
The HOST Standard was developed and sponsored by NAVAIR PMA-209. Unlike the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA™) Technical Standard and Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Technical Standard, HOST is not a consortium managed standard. Instead, the HOST standard is maintained by NAVAIR, who uses a team of academicians and industry members to coordinate with integrators, module vendors, and related standards groups such as the SOSA Consortium and VITA.
HOST Documentation Hierarchy
The HOST Documentation Hierarchy is organized using a tiered approach that is parallel to the product design process. This approach provides the flexibility needed to accomplish the goals of HOST’s key concepts.
