• FACE Technical Standard, at a minimum, could provide for the Intersection of all
Platform Data points
• Applications written to Baseline Profile would run on ALL platforms
(Extremely Portable but may not leverage fuller capabilities of some platforms!)

Why FACE Initiative?
• DoD Airborne systems are typically developed for a unique set of
requirements by a single vendor
– Long lead times, even for urgent needs
– Platform-unique designs limit reuse of software and increase cost
– Creates barriers to competition within and across platforms
• Current DoD Acquisition structure does not support the process of
software reuse across different programs
– Aviation community has not adopted a common set of OA standards
sufficient to allow the reuse of software components across the DoD fleet
– Aviation community has failed to enforce conformance to any existing open
standards that are in use
– Platform PMAs are not funded to assume cost or schedule risk of multiplatform requirements
The Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) initiative is an approach
designed as a response to the DoD aviation community’s problems

FACE Objectives
• Establish a standard common operating environment to
support portable capability-based applications across
Department of Defense (DoD) avionics systems
– Determine a strict set of Open Standards for the environment
– Build upon Open Architecture (OA), Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA)
and Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)
– Portable, Modular, Partitioned, Scalable, Extendable, Secure

Why a FACE Consortium?
A consortium formed under the
auspices of The Open Group is a
“Voluntary Consensus Standards
Body” as defined by the Nat’l Tech.
Transfer Act and OMB Circular A119 with the following attributes:
• Openness
• Balance of interest
• Due process
• An appeals process
• Consensus
• Enabler for consortium
participation by US agencies
• Foundation of consortium status
under National Cooperative
Research and Production Act
(NCRPA)

How FACE Initiative is Different
From previous DoD OA efforts
• DoD worked with The Open Group to establish the FACE consortium
such that each Service and Industry members had an equal voice in
determining the solution
• Aggressive outreach by both Industry and Gov’t
– Build executive interest and adoption from the bottom up
– 1 Contract Award (Navy), 1 RFP (Navy), 8 RFIs to-date (5 Navy, 3
Army), 2 BAAs (1 Navy, 1 Army), 1 SBIR (Army)
• FACE initiative is addressing business aspects in parallel with
development of the Technical Standard
– Analyzed previous OA efforts
– Developed FACE Business Guide
– Defined in sufficient detail to allow conformance certification
– Public-Private collaboration to establish value for both customer and
supplier

FACE Technical Strategy
The FACE strategy is to create a software environment on the installed
computing hardware of DoD aircraft (a.k.a. platforms) that enables FACE
applications to be deployed on different platforms with minimal to no
impact to the FACE application.

What is FACE Architecture?
• A software computing environment to enable product lines for
military Aviation
• The FACE architecture is comprised of a set of “places” where
variance occurs
– Points of variance are called “Segments”
– The structure created by connecting these segments together is the
beginning of the FACE architecture
• Horizontal and vertical interfaces defined as part of FACE
architecture

Summary
• FACE initiative will enable getting capabilities to
the Warfighter faster and at a lower cost
• FACE documentation is being designed through
industry and government collaboration
• FACE initiative is addressing the business
concerns that have hampered other OA
initiatives
• FACE Technical Standard should be considered
for any Defense avionics software procurement
where reuse is a goal

Interface Overview
• FACE Technical Standard expands on the MOSA
and OA principles
• Use of abstraction layers at Key Interfaces to
diminish the need for new standards
– O/S interface (C) focused on POSIX profile 51-53 and
ARINC 653
– I/O abstraction interface (B) based on common I/O
API and messaging interface
– Standardized Transport abstraction interface (A)
• Defined to support POSIX, ARINC 653, DDS, CORBA
• Extensible and Flexible for integration of future transport
mechanisms

Open Architecture Requirement
• DoD Directive 5000.1
– “E1.1.27. Systems Engineering. Acquisition programs shall be managed through the application of a systems
engineering approach that optimizes total system performance and minimizes total ownership costs. A
modular, open-systems approach shall be employed, where feasible.”
• N6/N7 Naval Open Architecture (NOA) Requirements Letter 9010, Ser
N6N7/5U916276, 23 Dec 05
– This letter establishes the requirement to implement Open Architecture (OA) principles across the Navy
Enterprise. Warfare systems include hardware, software and people.
• SECNAVINST 5000.2E
– “Naval open architecture precepts shall be applied across the Naval Enterprise as an integrated technical and
business approach and shall be used for all systems, including support systems, when developing an
Acquisition Strategy per ASN(RD&A) memorandum of 5 Aug 04 and CNO (N6/N7) memorandum of 23 Dec
05 with enclosure (1).”
• FACE is a rigorous and enforceable definition of OA
–

–
34
FACE is a standard, not a program or product
Single, open interpretation of existing industry standards and software best practices
Established collaboratively between services and industry
Initiated to achieve the goals of OA by explicitly addressing the business and technical issues which plagued
other OA attempts
