The Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) is a government/industry/academia initiative started by U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) in 2010 to create a standard for avionics application development. The goal of FACE is to lower the cost and amount of time necessary to create open systems applications and promote reusable applications across multiple platforms. To facilitate collaboration with industry and academia, The Open Group created the FACE Consortium for the purpose of developing, publishing, and administering conformance to the specification. Besides NAVAIR and Army, to date more than 90 companies and over 1,175 members involved in the avionics sector have joined the FACE Consortium. Most recently, in 2016, the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) officially joined FACE, rounding out the participation of the entire US military services. Today each military branch has and continues to require FACE in their proposals for any future capabilities.
Traditional high-performance computing platforms are limited by the connection bandwidth and latency between the multiple computing elements needed to achieve the performance targets. For the embedded market, the difficulty is compounded by the demanding environmental requirements. The VPX standard resolves this limitation with a large number of high-throughput point-to-point connections between the processing elements in a rugged mechanical structure.
