Open Architecture……Moving Into DHS
  • TSA Security Technology Integrated Program (STIP):
    • New interfaces with Transportation Security Equipment are based upon an Open Data Model
    • STIP Enterprise interfaces utilizing open standards
  • CBP Border Security Programs: Customer has stated a desire for open architecture-based systems

TSA STIP Phase II Development

open architecture oa
Open Architecture (OA)
  • A system with an open architecture:
    • Allows for easy incorporation of new capabilities & technologies without significant architecture modifications over the life cycle
      • Easy: ability to add a new sensor, capability, etc., in a matter of days or weeks rather than months or years
      • Significant:fundamental architecture of the system – including how components connect to each other – does not require modification to add something new.
    • Contains no system or interface-level proprietary solutions
    • Uses modular software components
    • Uses published interfaces & standards to promote competition – both up-front & over the life cycle of the system – to drive down costs & schedule

OA

Open Architecture’s Value Proposition: Better, Faster, Cheaper

open business model
Open Business Model
  • Unlocks full potential of open architecture. An open business model:
    • Allows competition: Costs & ideas for capability improvement
    • Gives buyers greater flexibility

Promoting Vendor Innovation Can Shift Costs from DHS to Industry

other oa items
Other OA Items
  • Standards (the road to plug-n-play…..)
    • DHS’ role in designating government or industry-defined & controlled standards
  • Costs
    • Perception of open systems costing more
    • Savings of open systems are in standardization, reuse, commonality, & tech insertion
  • Intellectual property still has a place – just not at the interfaces
    • Protecting IP is critical for 3rd party developers, particularly small businesses
    • Fosters innovation and competition

Open Architecture & Open Business Model: Way Forward for DHS
