OSS

Government and industry representatives gathered on Tuesday, March 22, 2005, at Stennis Space Center to launch the second open source software research and development program between the U.S. Navy and the Open Source Software Institute ( OSSI ).

The effort is part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement ( CRADA ) between OSSI and the Commander, Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command ( CNMOC ). The three-year R&D program will explore the Navy's usage of open source software within the Naval Oceanographic Office's ( NAVOCEANO ) web services, scientific computing and enterprise architecture systems.

The CRADA is the second such major R&D program between the U.S. Navy and OSSI ( www.oss-institute.org ). The initial CRADA between the Navy and OSSI was conducted between October 2001 and 2004, and enabled the Navy to identify and document extensive usage of open source applications and programs within their enterprise systems.
