The extreme cost and complexity of avionics software is a continuing problem for the Air Force. This study investigates the problem from the viewpoint of defining new and innovative approaches for production of operational flight programs. The result if an integrated approach to design which uses a HOL source language, graphical design aids, structured programming discipline, coordinated testing, and modularity techniques to produce reliable, reusable, well documented operational flight programs. Innovative ideas include a new perspective of executive functions and a modified view of the role played by support software in the design process. The total Operational Software Concept study consists of two phases. Phase 1 is a development study effort and Phase 2 is a demonstration effort. This report summarizes the results of Phase 1.
