Software Defined Systems Committee (SDS)

The Wireless Innvoation Forum's Software Defined Systems (SDS) Committee focuses on projects in standards creation for software architectures, application programming interfaces, test and certification, including:

  • Defining an industry driven SCA evolution roadmap for the international community
  • Profiling the SCA specification and related APIs to define internationally accepted variants that are hosted by the Forum
  • Developing extensions to the SCA standards that address any gaps between the defined SCA evolution roadmap and Forum accepted SCA specification variants
  • Providing implementation and certification guides, tools etc. easing implementation and supporting proliferation
  • Establishing and managing industry led certification programs where appropriate 
Management and oversight of this committee is provided by a Steering Group working in collaboration with an Advisory Council. Committee chairs are Eric Nicollet (Thales Communications) and Ken Dingman (Harris).
