Abstract:

In July of 1972 NADC initiated work on the development of a Software Engineering Facility. This work was primarily motivated by the need to provide a facility wherein a significant portion of avionics software development could take place prior to the availability of actual hardware. As a result it focussed its attention on the use of emulation techniques particularly in the light of its potential when fourth generation micro-programmed processors were employed. In late 1973 NADC contracted with SofTech for this study whose purpose was to take a broader view of the entire software development process and to recommend a plan for NADC which would lead to the development of a Software Engineering Facility that would support the full spectrum of activities included in that process. In short, the results of the investigations have led the authors to recommend that NADC initiate the first phases of the development of a full scale, comprehensive Software Engineering Facility.
