Future Army aircraft, avionics, and weapons system will be required complex state-of-the-art multiprocessing computer system. New communication and processor technologies permit multitasked process operation across multiple processing elements reducing overall costs, minimizing packaging requirements, and improving reliability and maintainability. As a result, rigorous timing, sizing and processing requirements will be placed on embedded software systems. Recent DoD standardization directives mandated for software developments programs combined with complex and exacting system requirements will significantly increase software development and maintenance costs. Complete software development life cycle. In Phase I, S*R will identify innovated software development methodologies, procedures, and tools which will satisfy the Army's current and future requirements for real time software applications. S*R will develop a detailed Operational Concept Document (OCD) for the proposed Coherent Avionics Software Support Tools (CASST) system. The CASST OCD will provide the framework for the design of a comprehensive "software development environment" that will allow the Army to develop a new embedded software system on time and within budget. Moreover, the CASST system will provide support for proven software engineering principles to develop robust reusable and standardized avionics software systems. software systems.
