Abstract:

The meeting proceedings from this symposium on Strategies to Mitigate Obsolescence in Defense Systems Using Commercial Components was organized and sponsored by the Systems Concepts and Integration SCI Panel of the Research and Technology Organization of NATO in Budapest, Hungary from 23 to 25 October 2000. The symposiums goal was to propose new strategies for obsolescence management including open architecture, functional partitioning and technology insertion that have to be addressed during system engineering, detailed design, production and product support. The symposium outlined actual problems and solutions to the issue of obsolescence by the entire defense system community. It also addressed burning questions related to the problem of parts obsolescence and diminishing manufacturing sources and material shortages. Management tools and methodologies to cope with the risk of obsolescence were discussed. This included new design concepts and system architectures to allow advanced technology insertion during the system life cycle. Session topics were organized under the four topics of status and experience with COTS technology in defense electronic systems, obsolescence management tools, new design concepts and architectures to combat obsolescence, strategies and initiatives for life cycle management.
