Message from the SOSA Chairman
Dr. Ilya Lipkin, Technical Expert for Open Architectures at AFLCMC/EZ
SOSA Consortium Members, Government/Military Sponsors, Industry Partners, Supporters, Benefactors and Friends…welcome to 2021.
In many ways, it’s nice to be looking at 2020 in the proverbial rear-view mirror. It was a year of unprecedented challenges, in human terms and on a global scale. Every one of us was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the various national and state responses to it, but as a wise person once said, “if you want to change the world, start by cleaning your room.”
Our room is the SOSA Consortium, and I’m pleased to report that owing to the incredible talent, focus, professionalism and dedication of our members, we continued to advance SOSA’s vision, concept, technical and business architectures under singularly challenging circumstances.
