Abstract:

The U.S. Navy has embarked on a new computing resources standardization effort, the Next Generation Computer Resources NGCR program. The program is designed to fulfill the Navys need for standard computing resources while allowing it to take advantage of commercial products and investments and to field technological advances more quickly. The program has identified ten interface areas for standardization. The Operating Systems Standards Working Group has been tasked with identifying a set of interfaces for operating systems OS. The general requirements for the OS standard include Ada, real-time, distribution, multilevel security, fault tolerance, and that it be realizable on heterogenous systems. An initial OS interface standard is expected in 1993, and the final standard is expected to be usable in the procurement of Navy systems in fiscal year 1996. This report summarizes the results of the Next Generation Computer Resources NGCR Operating Systems Standards Working Group OSSWG evaluation of candidates for the Operating System Interface OSIF Baseline. Extensive details of the preplanning for the evaluation are provided in the Evaluation Process Report. The recommendation for the OSIF baseline is described in the Recommendation Report. An After Action Report provides general recommendations and lessons learned.
