• NITRD Coordination Areas

    The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's member agencies coordinate their NITRD research activities and plans by Program Component Areas (PCAs) or program focus areas. For each PCA, agency representatives meet in an Interagency Working Group (IWG) to exchange information and collaborate on research plans and activities such as testbeds, workshops, and cooperative solicitations.

  • Software Productivity, Sustainability, and Quality (SPSQ IWG)

    The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.

Overview

The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment. The core SPSQ R&D activities are software productivity, software quality, software cost, software economics, responsiveness to change, and sustainability. The R&D agenda coordinated by this IWG is to identify and foster research toward improved software development methods and environments. The drivers of this research agenda include information technology, industrial production, cyber security, computational science and engineering, evolving areas - such as the Internet of Things (IOT), and highly complex, interconnected software-intensive systems.

The primary SPSQ IWG objective is to accelerate progress in the science and technology of software production to deliver orders of magnitude improvement in software defect rates and in the time and cost of creating and sustaining software to drive innovation to the strategic advantage of the United States and develop the next-generation software-intensive systems. Another SPSQ IWG objective is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies and identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
