Abstract:

The system development process is an art, particularly subject to a trial-and-error kind of methodology in its early stages where functional requirements are first delineated into an approximate solution. In the present study, some specific steps in the process of developing an identification and raid recognition information system for air defense were identified and some of the considerations involved at each step were spelled out. The development steps and the considerations they require of the developer were generalized from an examination of the evolution of identification and raid recognition procedures in SAGE, and supplemented first by the development of similar procedures in BMEWS and second by a hypothetical application of the steps to the development of similar procedures for a satellite threat environment.
