On Tuesday, June 5, The Open Group Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Consortium will hold the FACE Consortium Exposition Day at the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum in Lexington Park, Maryland, to showcase applications and tools that promote reusable software capabilities for unifying DoD aviation systems. The event will take place and feature over 20 partners from government and the avionics industry showcasing examples of products aligned with the new FACE Technical Standard that help ensure warfighters can quickly and affordably benefit from continued software innovations.
The FACE Consortium is an aviation-focused professional group made up of avionics industry suppliers, customers and users. It provides a vendor-neutral forum for industry and the U.S. government to work together to develop and consolidate the open standards, best practices, guidance documents and business models necessary to achieve these results.
The exposition will consist of examples of FACE tools and applications by avionics industry partners from the FACE Consortium. The tools and applications showcased at the event are candidates for potential adoption of the FACE Technical Standard.
The details of the event are below and can be found in this flyer.
