To address the Army’s need for recertification cost reduction via analyzing and optimizing the ripple effects of incrementally updating mission systems designs, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to design and develop software for Change Management through Modeling, Analysis, and Optimization (CAMAO). CAMAO will assess the impact of changes to system models specified in AADL/SysML by incorporating change awareness capabilities into an existing OSATE ecosystem of tools. Change assessment in CAMAO will occur in a simulated environment where quantitative measures of change impact will be collected, providing the ability to quantify change impact caused by hardware/software dependencies. CAMAO will identify the best change implementation strategy that complies with user-defined optimization criteria by using the measures of performance collected during simulation. As a result, CAMAO will yield an unprecedented cost savings and risk reduction for the government by improving change awareness, reducing recertification impact, and identifying the best change implementation strategy. In Phase I, POC will demonstrate the feasibility of CAMAO and reach technology readiness level (TRL)-4 by implementing and demonstrating a prototype with change awareness capabilities. In Phase II, POC plans to mature CAMAO further and reach TRL-5 by including more extensive change awareness enhancements to the existing OSATE toolset.
