Abstract

Many systems existing in today s technologically based defense environment utilize embedded computers and processing to perform independent functions that must be assimilated, collaborated and controlled externally. Software that runs on these systems is developed without the advantage of a consistent model or standard that allows seamless cooperation and coordination of concurrent and asynchronous processing. Without a consistent model and standard, the developments tend to be inefficient, custom, highly tuned, and difficult to maintain. What is needed is a model that can be advanced as a standard and can provide ease of visualization execution for systems that operate concurrently. The standard will provide the consistent methodology required for causing these systems perform efficiently while accomplishing concurrent operation. This proposal offers an approach that will be defined and documented and advanced to accomplish these goals. The products will address the needs demanded to define and execute concurrent operation in real world systems, and do it in a consistent well defined manner.
