Speed + Depth of Capability Wins

At North Atlantic Industries, we believe that depth of technology, engineering, manufacturing and support capabilities are the difference between winning and losing in I/O-intensive Mil-Aero-Industrial computing applications.  It’s why we’ve created COSA® – a massively Configurable Open Systems Architecture that combines Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components with value-added IP.

With North Atlantic and COSA you can rapidly deliver more distributed, intelligent, SWaP-efficient and total cost-effective mission systems than with any other embedded electronics partner.

For over 50 years, the top 10 defense companies worldwide have relied on NAI Solutions to help them out-pace, out-adapt and out-last their competition, eliminate future design risks, and accelerate their time-to-mission.


Get to market in less time, with more I/O capability at the edge of your Mil-Aero-Industrial applications.


Redesign, reuse or retrofit your application without the design risks, costs and timelines you’ve accepted as givens.


Embed ruggedness and resiliency in your mission systems, with useful lives you can measure in decades.

Risk Avoidance Scenarios

Rethink the design and engineering risks you’ve accepted as givens

Redesign Risk

Unplanned design changes threaten your entire program. You may have to redesign from scratch, and start your program over again. Costs, timelines, and tempers rise to new heights.

Risk Avoidance

COSA's modularity, configurability and I/O density make unplanned design changes a breeze. Your program is saved. Your reputation grows. Your customer is thrilled.

Customization Risk

Your have very unique requirements. Convention says you must build something custom. And, incur significant NRE. Total costs, timelines and expectations soar.

Risk Avoidance

COSA's modularity gives you 1.4 quadrillion potential configurations. Meet virtually any embedded system requirement in record time, with little or no NRE.

Specification Risk

Your application specs are less than exact. Eventually the requirements change significantly. You need more I/O than you planned for. But, your SWaP is at its limit.

Risk Avoidance

COSA's channel density is unmatched in the industry. Add or change modules, boards or systems to meet your new requirements, in the same or smaller footprint.

Supply Risk

You took advantage of COTS technology to lower cost and get to market faster. Now you discover a key technology you count on may be discontinued, or unavailable – you just don’t know.

Risk Avoidance

COSA's long lifecycle support is ideal for long-lived Mil-Aero-Industrial applications. Design with technology and supply you know will be available for years to come.

COSA® Product Family

The most modular, agile and rugged portfolio of embedded I/O modules, boards, systems and power supplies of its kind

COSA Systems

Application Ready or Configurable Systems ranging from Nano systems with one I/O module for distributed environments, to high-density systems supporting up to 10 motherboards and 60 smart modules. Leverage our modular architecture to meet your requirements while accelerating your design, development, qualification and delivery schedules.

COSA I/O Boards

Our 3U & 6U ruggedized motherboards can be configured in a virtually unlimited number of ways to meet your I/O, measurement or communication requirements with unmatched channel density. Our modular architecture supports the selection of up to 6 smart modules per board. Additionally, these intelligent I/O boards can operate as standalone systems, allowing you to distribute more I/O capability at the edge.

COSA Single Board Computers also available.

COSA Smart Modules

Our function modules are the building blocks of more I/O-intensive, distributed and cost effective mission systems. 70+ I/O, measurement, simulation or communication COTS modules let you rapidly create configurable mission systems -with higher channel density, optimized SWaP, and no NRE. Embedded processing intelligence reduces or eliminates single board computer overhead.

Input / Output



Rugged Power Supplies

NAI designs and manufactures a full line of high-density COTS, Modified COTS and custom power supplies, designed for harsh environments that comply with environmental standards, including MIL-STD-810G, VITA 47 and MIL-STD-901. NAI’s rugged power supplies are SWaP-optimized and we offer a complete line of 3U and 6U VPX power supplies compliant with VITA 62. All NAI power supplies have integrated EMI filters per MIL-STD-461 as well as input transient protection.
