AbstractUnder MDA07-005, Harmonia is building a Legacy Software Modernization Service (LSMS) that leverages the Rise legacy software conversion tool developed on other SBIR work by Harmonia. The LSMS will be applied to the modernization of the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS), a mission-critical legacy system that has evolved over more than 30 years of development. The LSMS uses a hybrid approach combining the automatic translation of legacy code to modern languages with tools to enhance the understanding of legacy code, for instances when full automatic translation is not feasible. This work will enable easier maintenance and evolution of legacy code bases by also providing the capability to enhance existing legacy code bases with new capabilities written in modern languages that seamlessly interoperate with the existing legacy code. This work is extremely valuable in that it can be easily transitioned for use by many DoD, federal, and commercial programs that are trying to extend the life of legacy systems.
