Abstract : The Market Study supplies the Central Archive for Reusable Defense Software (CARDS) program with information regarding the current state-of-the- practice of software development and maintenance within the military services. Results of analysis of collected data reflect current practices, as well as identified needs within each military service for establishment of a suitable infrastructure to enable reuse. Full comprehension of the software needs of potential reusers is required before CARDS can address its ultimate goal of facilitating widespread software reuse throughout the DoD. The focus of results has therefore been geared toward facilitating the CARDS process of institutionalizing software reuse within the Department of Defense (DoD) by more finely concentrating our development, technology transfer and franchising efforts toward satisfaction of identified requirements.
