THE INTEGRATION OF THIS NEW RELIABLE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS WITH EXISTING ADVANCED VERIFICATION, VALIDATION AND TESTING APPROACHES. THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WILL DEFINE A COMPREHENSIVE FAULT AVOIDANCE METHODOLOGY. A SOPHISTICATED AUTOMATED TOOLSET, TO BE PROTOTYPED FURING PHASE II, WILL SUPPORT THE EFFICIENT DEVELOPMENT OF HIGHLY RELIABLE ADA SOFTWARE.
