Abstract : The Submarine Message Buffer (SMB) is a real, time embedded message processing system developed at the Naval Command, Control and Ocean Surveillance Center, Research, Development, Test and Evaluation Division (NRaD). The SMB is sponsored by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) to support modernization of SSN (Los Angeles and Seawolf class submarines) radio rooms. The development strategy adopted for the SMB concentrated on the reuse of Ada software. This paper will focus on the design, processes and methodologies, which were used in the development of this system. Metrics will also be provided showing why this system has been identified as an Ada success story by the Ada Joint Program Office among others.
