Abstract : The Next Generation Computer Resources (NGCR) Program is a Navy standardization effort designed to fulfill the Navy's needs for standard computer resources while at the same time allowing it to take advantage of commercial products and investments and to field new technology more quickly and effectively. The program is centered around the selection and adoption of open system standards in several areas, including backplanes, local area networks, operating systems, project support environments, graphics, and database management systems. IDA is providing support to the NGCR through participation in the NGCR Operating Systems Standards Working Group (OSSWG), a group chartered to identify and help define commercially based operating system interface standards for use in Navy mission-critical computer systems in the mid-1990s and beyond. Because of the results of an extensive and rigorous evaluation process, the NGCR operating system interface standards will be based on POSIX, a family of standards being defined by IEEE Project 1003. This document is a compilation of IDA written contributions to the NGCR OSSWG for fiscal year 1992. It includes copies of IDA contributions to NGCR OSSWG documents and a tabular summary of POSIX real-time application environment profiles.
