Abstract:

The Next Generation Computer Resources NGCR Program is the Navy 6.3 program being proposed to provide computer resources to the Navy through the adoption of an open systems architecture. With the initiation of an open system architecture, it is expected that more rapid technology transition will occur. The Distributed Operating and Run-Time Systems task of the Mission Critical Computing Project is providing 6.2 research results on which to base the NGCR operating Systems Standards Working Group OSSWG. The NGCR Program will provide the majority of computer resources to the Navy for military critical applications. Influencing the NGCR is an important payoff for Navy research. By providing a 6.2 research base, this task puts the NGCR OSSWG in a position to make technically knowledgeable decisions in a timely manner. The objective of this task is to address research and technical issues as identified in the NGCR OSSWG in the area of distributed operating and run-time systems. Candidate systems will be evaluated with respect to their current level of maturity and to how well they address the NGCRs requirements for an operating system. Section 2 describes the NGCR OSSWG abstract model used as a framework for evaluating the candidate systems. Sections 3 and 4 present Mach and ARTX in this framework. The results are summarized in section 5.
