About The Event



Computer Society Of India

Special Interest Group – Information Security


Computer Society Of India, Bangalore Chapter





Theme: Open Architecture & Integration Challenges in Defence System

Date: September 3rd & 4th , 2014

Venue : Dr. V.M. Ghatge Convention Centre, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited HAL, Next to HAL Museum, Old Airport Road, Marathalli Post, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India


Diverse weapon systems are either indigenously made or procured by Indian defence. This opens up a challenge of integrating systems to function seamlessly. Interoperable Open Architecture (IOA) thus becomes an increasingly desirable part of IT System. Level of interoperability is growing. The open-standards-based Data Distribution Service-DDS to decouple subsystems  and to enable independent development, innovation and interoperability over time becomes vital to IT strategy.  Subsystems procured any time from anyone during development and deployment would aim to interoperate successfully with existing and legacy systems.

With this as a focus, Computer Society of India is hosting 9th edition of IT in Defence with "Open Architecture & Integration Challenges in Defence System" as theme.
