Abstract
Harmonia, Inc. is pleased to offer this proposal to develop the Software Analysis through Visual Extraction (SAVE) tool, a visual programming and architecture tool that works in conjunction with Harmonia's Legacy Analysis Workbench (LAW). SAVE is specifically targeted at modeling, visualizing, and extracting reusable code segments, design artifacts, and architectural components from complex, mixed-language software. SAVE is designed to help system engineers re-architect legacy systems by extracting design artifacts required for modern architectures such as the DoD (or C4ISR) Architecture Framework. Legacy software is modeled in a platform-independent XML syntax, allowing us to design analysis and visualization tools for the XML modeling language and apply them to multiple implementation languages. Our model is constructed by translating existing software in mixed legacy languages into the XML modeling language. We also identify metrics for evaluation. During this Phase I, SAVE components are chosen to fit the needs of the Missile Defense Agency, where prototype code from various sources must be reused to create new software entities, for example Mission Profiles in the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radar System, or software must be integrated into legacy platforms, such as the AEGIS system.
