Research Institution
Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) systems today are largely software based and growing in complexity. However, despite the advances in development practices and tools, the goals of accelerating the rate at which systems can be delivered and reducing their costs cannot be met by simply writing software faster. Delivering faster, less expensive, and higher quality software will only be met with comparable improvements in the methodology and tools used for testing and analysis. The opportunity exists under this SBIR to develop and engineer an integrated technology suit to accomplish MDA"s Multi-Element Integration Test (MEIT) goals. Developing automatic testing capability across the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) will allow for execution of complex tests and verification of the results in near real-time. These Phase I efforts will provide a significant advancement in BMD MEIT execution, and supports MDA"s desire to deliver capability to BMDS at a faster pace within a fiscally challenged environment.
