Abstract:

This report contains the results of a one-year study to assess the feasibility of constructing the information processing components of C3 systems from reusable building blocks. The objective is to reduce the time, cost, and risk of acquiring and modifying C3 computer systems. Three kinds of building blocks are identified requirements, design, and software. A data flow architecture is proposed as a framework for partitioning a system into functional components with flexibility to adapt to changing requirements and different configurations. A preliminary plan is presented for further work to demonstrate the building block concept for C3 systems. Author
