Abstract : This document is the first iteration towards a technical plan for the DoD Software Technology Initiative, and is intended for review and comment. The background of the Initiative and DoD's historical difficulties with software are covered. Tentative candidates for R&D support are discussed in the sequence of their potential for significant incremental payoff -- short-term, (less than 4 years), medium-term (4-7 years), and long-term (more than 7 years). More detailed discussion of the candidates and a list of ideas tentatively rejected are included in appendices. Reviewers should comment using the questionnaire. (Author)
