The Munition Open Architecture Test and Evaluation Laboratory (MOATEL) provides the independent verification missing from open architecture by validating models against real-world processes.

Weapons Open System Architecture (WOSA) refers to platforms in which system interfaces share widely accepted standards, with which conformance can be verified.

“Three pillars – standards maintenance, expertise, and verification – support WOSA. The MOATEL is the entity that accomplishes these pillars,” said Christopher Neal, open architecture subject matter expert, Munitions Directorate, U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory.
