Abstract
AS MORE AND MORE WEAPON SYSTEMS EMPLOY CRUCIAL DIGITAL SYSTEMS IN THEIR ARCHITECTURES, COMPUTING SYSTEM RELIABILITY IS BECOMING AN EVER INCREASING PART OF THE OVERALL WEAPON SYSTEMS RELIABILITY. IN CONTRAST TO THE RELIABILITY LEVELS ATTAINED IN COMPUTER HARDWARE, SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT IS NOT AS ADVANCED. IN FACT, MOST CURRENT SOFTWARE PRODUCTION METHODS DO NOT YIELD SOFTWARE PRODUCTS MEETING THE DESIRED RELIABILITY REQUIREMENTS. THE MAJOR AIM OF THIS STUDY IS TO INVESTIGATE THE APPLICATION OF SOFTWARE FAULT TOLERANCE TECHNIQUES TO BUILDING HIGH RELIABILITY SOFTWARE, AND TO DEVELOP A FAULT TOLERANT SOFTWARE RELIABILITY MODEL FOR THE EVALUATION OF FAULT TOLERANT SOFTWARE STRUCTURES IN WEAPON SYSTEMS.
