The high costs for software for systems developed within the Department of Defense is receiving increased attention from the highest levels of management. The major part of these costs is for software for what are called embedded computer systems. Such systems would include tactical weapon systems, command and control systems, avionics systems, etc. As part of the overall process of investigating the costs of software, in January 1975 a High Order Language Working Group HOLWG was chartered by the Department of Defense with representatives from the three services. The purpose of this group is to investigate the requirements and specifications for programming languages for embedded computer applications and to recommend the adoption or implementation of the necessary language or languages to achieve an appropriate degree of commonality of programming language usage in the services.
