Abstract
AETECH, A LEADER IN ADA ENVIRONMENTS AND TOOLS, A STARS CONTRACTOR SINCE ITS INCEPTION, AND THE ADA9X CONTRACTOR FOR THE INFORMATION SYSTEMS DOMAIN PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND DEVELOP A SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE FOR THE INFORMATION SYSTEMS DOMAIN. IN PHASE I, AETECH WILL ANALYZE THE REQUIREMENTS AND MARKET POTENTIAL OF THE DOMAIN AND PROVIDE A DETAILED SPECIFICATION FOR A SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE WHICH MAY BE USED AS A BASIS FOR STARS AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMMERCIAL REUSABLE SOFTWARE. THIS SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE, REFERRED TO IN THIS PROPOSAL AS THE INFORMATION SYSTEMS SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE (ISSA), WILL BE DEVELOPED AS AN INSTANCE OF THE DOMAIN SPECIFIC SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE (DSSA). THE PHASE I PRODUCT WILL BE DELIVERED AS A REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS, OF THE MARKET POTENTIAL FOR REUSABLE SOFTWARE ASSETS, A HIGH-LEVEL DESIGN FOR THE ARCHITECTURE, A DETAILED DESIGN COMPRISED OF A SET OF ADA SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE COMPONENTS, AND A USERS MANUAL DESCRIBING ITS PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION, RULES FOR USE, AND INTERFACES TO COMMON HARDWARE, PERIPHERALS, AND BINDINGS OF DOD INFORMATION SYSTEMS. IN PHASE II, AETECH WILL REFINE THE SYSTEM TO THE SPECIFICATIONS OF STARS, DEVELOP A COMMERCIAL QUALITY SOFTWARE SYSTEM, AND ESTABLISH AN OFFICE IN MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA, TO ASSIST IN INTEGRATING THE ISSA WITH THE ASSET REPOSITORY. ADA HAS RECENTLY BEEN MANDATED FOR THE INFORMATION SYSTEM DOMAIN, BUT ADA WAS ORIGINALLY DESIGNED FOR EMBEDDED SYSTEMS, NOT INFORMATION SYSTEMS, AND THERE IS AN IMPORTANT NEED TO ESTABLISH A SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE FOR REUSABLE CODE IN THIS AREA. THIS PROJECT, ENTITLED INFORMATION SYSTEMS SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE (ISSA) ESTABLISHES THE BASIS FOR SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT IN THIS DOMAIN.
