Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


IV.H.02. Software Infrastructure Technology. To provide support for evolutionary prototyping of real-time systems that increases productivity, decreases cost, and minimizes defect insertion and post development software support (PDSS). The technology has the potential to reduce PDSS costs of Army systems by 5 percent. FY95—Implement a testbed that incorporates a rapid prototyping environment developed by the Naval Post-graduate School. Test and evaluate the ability of this environment to generate correct Ada code from high-level specifications for several actual real-time control models. FY96—Transition these tools to the Life Cycle Software Engineering Centers (LCSEC) at RDECs; in the testbed, incorporate and demonstrate automated selection of reusable modules from a small reuse repository; demonstrate and evaluate the use of graphical representation of code and specifications during product analysis and assessment. FY97—Complete and test a process model and implement a testbed for groupware support of collaborative software development. This testbed will incorporate automated support for formal inspection of software products (requirements, design, code, test plans, documentation) as well as quality and process metrics.

Supports: AMC Life Cycle Software Engineering Centers (ATCOM, MICOM, CECOM, and AMCCOM), ISC Software Development Center.
