Navy newsstand (July 21, 2006): PEO IWS, DAU release Naval Open Architecture online Learning Module.

WASHINGTON -- The Program Executive Office, Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS), chair of the Open Architecture Enterprise Team (OAET), and the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) released the Naval Open Architecture Continuous Learning Module (CLM) July 19.

CLM is an online learning course that has been developed to introduce Navy and Marine Corps acquisition professionals, sponsors, and fleet requirements officers to OA principles, and how to implement OA across the naval enterprise.

"We have long needed an introduction to Open Architecture that can be used by all hands to get a basic understanding of what it's all about, why we do it, and what it does for us," said Bill Johnson, director of Naval Open Architecture. "The continuous learning module we're fielding now meets that need. I'd encourage individuals interested to log in and take the course."

The CLM introduces the student to OA technical and business principles, including modular design and design disclosure, reusable application software, interoperable joint warfighting applications and secure information exchange, life cycle affordability, and encouraging competition and collaboration.

In addition, the course discusses best practices in OA contracting, ways to properly incentivize contractors, OA-related intellectual property rights issues, and some examples of the successful implementation of OA in the ARCI (Acoustic Rapid COTS Insertion) and E-2 Hawkeye programs.

This CLM is available on the DAU Continuous Learning Center (CLC) Web site at <>, which is a Department of Defense resource dedicated to the delivery of continuous learning opportunities in support of the acquisition workforce. The CLC is a publicly accessible Web site, and anyone can take the courses it offers. Navy and Marine Corps personnel, however, will receive credit for successfully completing the two-hour course.

More information about naval OA is available from the Naval Open Architecture Special Interest Area on the Defense Acquisition University's Acquisition Community Connection Web site at <>.
