Abstract:

This paper presents the first revision of the SDI Ada Process Description Language SAPDL. SAPDL provides a uniform notation for the description of SDI system architectures and Battle Management and Command, Control, and Communications BMC3 architectures. SAPDL is not a replacement for the numerous other methods of describing the architectures that have been used in past studies, but is an additional means of description. Such a uniform formal description is needed to facilitate 1 the evaluation of comparison of architectures and development of standard tools for the analysis of architectures 2 standardization of architectural specification for simulation purposes, and 3 development of new architectures based on preferred characteristics of architectures from previous studies. This document presents the draft SAPDL and the issues addressed here are only those that are relevant to providing formal descriptions of system structure and behavior both for interface consistency checking and for system simulation and evaluation.
