Successful software systems eventually outlive the hardware they are deployed upon and must be migrated to a modern platform. The AN/ALE-47 Operational Flight Program (OFP) is an example of such a system. Migration to a new platform incurs risk because it requires some level of change to the existing code base. Great cost and effort in testing and maintenance have been invested to bring the system to maturity. This is especially true of mission-critical tactical systems. However, migration offers the opportunity for enhanced performance, greater interoperability, and reduced software lifecycle costs. A balanced approach is required that maximizes gains in performance, interoperability, and lifecycle cost savings while minimizing risk and the cost of migration. SimVentions believes it has the experience, knowledge, and tools to provide such an approach. SimVentions will rely upon the knowledge gained as a member of the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACETM) Consortium, the experience of re-hosting the Nulka Controller software in a Data Distribution Service (DDS) environment, and tools developed for other efforts like Dexter, Tactical Monitoring and Injection Tool (TCMIT), and Ada to C++ to re-host the AN/ALE-47 to run on the Intel i7 or Xeon processor in a FACE environment.
