Abstract : The objective of this three-phase effort is to Identify the hardware/software technology pertinent to the implementation of tightly-coupled embedded distributed systems for DoD applications, Establish an integrated approach regarding the total life-cycle software development period with correlation as to the applicability of existing/near-term software engineering methodology, techniques and tools to each life-cycle phase, and Define the functional design requirements pertinent to the far-term development of needed software engineering methodology, techniques and tools. A product of this effort is the recommended design of a system support environment encompassing the integrated implementation of candidate software engineering tools.
