Abstract : The words software crisis should not be new to anyone managing a program that involves software. A shortage of skilled, software personnel is adversely affecting the development and subsequent maintenance of today's and future weapon systems. The Department of Defense (DOD), as well as industry, acknowledge this crisis and are taking bold measures to alleviate it. The Common Ada Missile Packages (CAMP) program is one such measure the DOD has undertaken to ease the crisis via a high-payoff remedy -- reuse of realtime embedded (RTE) software. CAMP is a pathfinding effort designed to investigate the feasibility of RTE software reuse by actually developing reusable Ada parts, compiler benchmarks and a parts engineering system (PES). This paper describes the genesis of CAMP, structure of the CAMP program, evaluation results and CAMP products. McDonnell Douglas Missile Systems Company developed the CAMP products under the sponsorship of the Armament Directorate, Wright Laboratory at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.
