Abstract

In 1995, an initiative was launched at Boeing (then McDonnell Douglas) to assess the potential for reuse of operational flight program (OFP) software across multiple fighter aircraft platforms, and to define and demonstrate a supporting system architecture based upon open commercial hardware, software, standards and practices [1]. The following year, this became a key element of the Bold Stroke Open System Architecture avionics affordability initiative which applied these techniques to the broader tactical aircraft mission processing domain. The Bold Stroke architecture, application components, middleware framework, and development processes have been leveraged on an increasing number of military platforms of national importance including manned and unmanned vehicles for the USAF and USN.

Our experiences on this effort have demonstrated the dramatic increases in software development productivity possible through use of cross-platform reuse and highly portable and standardized run-time subsystems. They have also highlighted weaknesses in several areas which significantly impact overall system cost, quality, and timeliness, many of which are unique to large-scale distributed real-time embedded (DRE) systems. Embedded system product lines depend on suitable domain specific architectures, run-time frameworks, application component libraries, and component development and integration tools and processes, and stress these capabilities beyond what would be sufficient for single system development approaches. In weapon systems, key remaining technology hurdles include (1) integration of thousands of software components with real-time deadlines; (2) integration of hard and soft real-time components; (3) enlargement in scope of quality of service resource management services from single processors to widely networked systems; (4) establishment of safety critical and mixed criticality runtime frameworks; (5) interoperability with closed legacy systems; (6) retention of high security levels while opening up strike assets to greater and greater levels of tactical network connectivity; and (7) infusing new technologies into fielded systems. In addition to these “design-centric” challenges, additional important challenges are contained at the front and back ends (i.e. requirements definition and verification) of the embedded system development process.
