Exciting FACE™ Air Force Event – April 2

By Judy Cerenzia, The Open Group

Coming on the heels of the release of Edition 2.0 of the FACE Technical Standard and recent procurement pull from the Army and Navy, The Open Group Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Consortium is pleased to announce a groundbreaking FACE Air Force Technical Interchange Meeting and Exposition. The event is taking place April 2, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Dayton/Fairborn in Fairborn, OH, near Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The Exposition will feature more than 25 partners from Industry and Government and offer a showcase of products and tools that are aligned with the FACE Technical Standard, which helps ensure warfighters can quickly and affordably benefit from continued software innovations.

Our Air Force hosts have put together a great lineup of speakers including keynotes by Lt Gen C. D. Moore II, Commander, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC), and Maj Gen Dwyer L. Dennis, Air Force PEO Fighter Bomber. Attendees will also hear the perspective of industry executives with presentations from GE Aviation, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Rockwell Collins and Real Time Innovations.

The FACE Consortium formed in June 2010 as a government and industry partnership to define an open avionics environment for all military airborne platform types. It has since grown into an aviation-focused professional group made up of industry suppliers, customers and users. It provides a vendor-neutral forum for industry and government to work together to develop and consolidate the open standards, best practices, guidance documents and business strategy that promote acquisition of affordable software systems, innovation and rapid integration of portable capabilities across global defense programs, and higher efficiency to deploy capabilities.

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.
