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

CBP Border Security


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


Dhs should insist on

DHS Should Insist On:


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
