Abstract : The Evolutionary Design of Complex Software (EDCS) program is a jointly sponsored technology endeavor of Rome Laboratory and Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA), addressing the need for continuous modernization of military systems over extended lifetimes. The EDCS program is a new program that began in late 1995 with a Broad Area Announcement (BAA) resulting about fifty contract and grant awards, the first beginning in May 1996 and most awarded by the start of 1997. With software becoming a critical part and governing the behavior of most civilian and military systems, the best way to adapt existing systems to changing requirements is through changing the software. EDCS investigates ways to create software that is more easily evolved and to transform current legacy systems into evolutionary systems.
