IDA Paper P-1926 was prepared in response to a request from the Battle Management C3 office within the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization SDIO of the Department of Defense DoD. The request was for a software technology program plan to define software research and development RD efforts required by the SDI, and to provide the basis for integrating the SDIO software technology program with ongoing non-SDIO programs. This paper emphasizes reviewing the ongoing software programs and plans within the DoD and academia. The reviews identify critical software technology areas required to meet the unique SDI requirements, and indicate priorities among the software technologies to meet attainability, productivity and reliability goals, as well as functional performance objectives.
