Title: Artifact Assessment Tool Suite Infrastructure (AATSI)
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00039-09-C-0012
Award Amount: $1,197,116.00


Using our 50+ person-years of experience with testing, XML processing, and Eclipse for DoD, we aim to largely automate compliance testing and catalog artifacts by providing a framework to integrate disparate compliance tools, for JTRS-TD to reduce time/effort by at least 30% over the tested product's lifecycle. Our architecture for Artifact Assessment Tool Suite Infrastructure (AATSI) supports compliance test initiation, execution, result evaluation/storage, and queries to generate reports. Through one common open-standards based infrastructure into which 'best-of-breed' tools can be integrated as web services, we future-proof AATSI to accommodate today and tomorrow's platforms for real-time and conventional systems. The architecture accommodates compliance and quality assessment tools, requirements tools, configuration management systems, report generators, log file analysis tools, Eclipse TPTP, and more. Our architecture represents meta-data and optionally artifacts in an XML canonical format for tool interoperability, replacing proprietary solutions. We permit automated and customized tests, latter using business processes compatible with service-oriented architecture. We propose a design, evaluation, and implementation roadmap. Innovations include XML-compliant Artifact Meta Language, promoting document standards either at XML schema or document interchange level; rule-driven components for extensibility; Orchestration Service for concurrent request execution; experience-based cognitive learning; and visualization via a compliance measure dashboard.
