Abstract:

SINCE SOFTWARE IS A CRUCIAL COMPONENT OF TACTICAL SYSTEMS, THE RELIABILITY AND AVAILABILITY OF TACTICAL SYSTEM SOFTWARE IS CRITICAL IN THE FIELD. IN IMPROVING SOFTWARE RELIABILITY, THE USE OF FORMAL SOFTWARE ENGINEERING METHODOLOGIES AND THE USE OF ADA WHICH SUPPORTS AND ENFORCES MODERN SOFTWARE ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES HAVE YIELDED SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS. IN CONTRAST, SIMILAR PROGRESS HAS NOT BEEN MADE IN IMPROVING TACTICAL SYSTEM SOFTWARE AVAILABILITY, I.E., TOLERANCE TO AND RECOVERY FROM SOFTWARE FAULTS. WHAT IS NEEDED FOR TACTICAL SYSTEM SOFTWARE IS TO ADAPT THE FAULT DETECTION AND RECOVERY TECHNIQUES FROM SOFTWARE FAULT TOLERANCE THEORY TO AN ADA SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT. HERE, WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE PRACTICAL TECHNIQUES FROM SOFTWARE FAULT TOLERANCE THEORY IN ORDER TO INCREASE THE AVAILABILITY OF TACTICAL SYSTEM SOFTWARE, TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF INCORPORATING THESE TECHNIQUES INTO AN ADA BASED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING METHODOLOGY, AND TO DEVELOP A SPECIFICATION FOR A SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TOOL FOR IMPLEMENTING THESE TECHNIQUES.
