Abstract

The design, development, testing, and maintenance of future complex combat systems will require new approaches and technologies. Present software technologies are limited by the fact that the computing system architectural layers and software components are not integrated. New software technologies are needed to adopt a more integrated view of the system architectural layers and software components of the computing system. This project proposes using a Service Oriented Architecture approach to adopt a system of systems approach to future combat system development. Our approach will be based on open standards and will utilize new technologies that integrate system modeling, simulation, data meanings and ontologies, and measures of effectiveness with the applications, the application support environments, the operating system, the computing platform architectures, the processing nodes and network layers.
