Charles River Analytics was awarded a $140,000 contract from the US Navy to develop a Core Combat Architecture (COCOA).
COCOA is a real-time, distributed, platform-agnostic computing framework that will help the Navy coordinate multiple combat systems with diverse sensor and weapons capabilities. Its application program interface (API) will provide developers access to data and communications services across ship systems to support real-time process scheduling, monitoring and managing the health and status of critical software, autonomous responses, and adaptation to new capabilities and battle conditions during combat.
