Abstract : Software Engineering has evolved rapidly but the gap between demand and software output continues to grow. By the end of the decade research programmes in North America, Europe and Japan will begin to produce results in the areas of software tools, computer architecture, etc. The symposium considered how these advances might be applied to the avionics systems of the nineties and beyond and their impact on our aspirations in areas such as operation, fault tolerance etc. The software element of modern weapon systems continues to grow in size and complexity; offering major advantages but also potential risks. NATO furnished.
