WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Wireless Innovation Forum, a non-profit international industry association dedicated to driving the future of radio communications and systems worldwide, today announced that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Joint Tactical Networking Center (JTNC), outlining the common objective of facilitating industry innovation for future enhancements and communications platforms, network management services, and the software communications architecture.
“The Forum has a long history of working closely with the US Government to define and evolve the SCA, dating back to 1997 when members of the Forum worked with the Modular Software-programmable Radio Consortium to define SCA 1.0,” said Lee Pucker, CEO of the Wireless Innovation Forum. “This MoU formalizes this collaborative relationship, allowing the Forum and Joint Tactical Networking Center to more rapidly and effectively achieve the aims of both organizations.”
The MoU includes activities with the Forum’s Coordinating Committee on International SCA Standards (CC SCA), which supports the harmonization of SCA based standards at the international level for the mutual benefits of all. Activities outlined include:
- exchanging information concerning roadmaps and coordinating roadmaps where appropriate,
