Abstract:

This annotated briefing describes the results of a survey of Ballistic Missile Defense BMD contractor software engineering environments SEEs. It also reports the current status of selected commercial off-the-shelf COTS SEEs that employ a general interoperability component such as a data repository or an intercommunication tool. The purpose of this briefing is to aid the BMD Organization BMDO in evaluating SEE-related risk mitigation. Contractor information was derived from one-on-one interviews with program offices or contractors for BMD system elements. COTS SEE information was derived from hands-on demonstrations of the products. The conclusions of this briefing are that more than 230 different products are now being used for BMD software development.
