United States Navy (USN)/United States Marine Corps (USMC) Future Vertical Lift (FVL) Family of Systems (FoS) Architecture Framework

Project Number:



Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation

Award Amount:



The USN/Marine Corps FVL FoS is currently composed of the Attack Utility Replacement Aircraft (AURA) program and the Future Vertical Lift Maritime Strike program. The purpose of this project is to develop an architecture framework that can be used to realize a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) for the FoS. The USN/USMC FVL FoS will rely upon a MOSA to help ensure the FoS can maximize the velocity at which new capabilities can be integrated and deployed to stay ahead of the emerging threat and support their evolving mission requirements.
