SYSTEM DESIGN AND ENGINEERING FOR REALTIME MILITARY DATA PROCESSING SYSTEMS
MITRE CORP BEDFORD MA
This report treats the key problems and considerations arising in the design, engineering, and implementation of military systems in which real-time data processing plays a central role. The principal distinguishing characteristics of these command and control systems are summarized. Organizational matters relating to responsibilities, operational inputs, and procurement aspects are described in the context of the over-all system acquisition process. Initial considerations which should guide the over-all design are discussed, including such outstanding design problems as the proper matching of manmachine capabilities and the provision of adequate capacity and flexibility for change and growth. Important aspects of hardware, software, and testware design are also detailed.
