NASHUA, N.H., 30 Nov. 2006. Sign up here for the Webcast today, Nov. 30, from Military & Aerospace Electronics on Software Modernization in Military Systems, featuring industry experts from Aonix and Green Hills Software.
The informative Webcast, "Software Modernization in Military Systems," will be at 3 p.m. eastern time today, Thursday 30 Nov.
The U.S. military's move toward a network-centric force is creating complex systems that place a tremendous burden on software development.
Designers face creating ever more complex systems in an open architecture environment that puts a premium on commonality and keeping costs down. Modernizing software systems to meet these goals presents many challenges that still need to be overcome especially in the military where systems have a much longer life cycle. The Software Modernization in Military Systems Webcast discusses solutions to these problems and more.
Kelvin Nilsen, chief technology officer of real-time software provider Aonix North America Inc. in San Diego will drive into crucial issues in a new imperative to consider software modernization strategies to enable fast, safe, and affordable application development. Outdated COTS tools and inefficient languages further complicate development of ever expanding and more complex embedded and real-time systems, Nilsen points out.
Then David Kleidermacher, chief technology officer of real-time operating system pioneer Green Hills Software in Santa Barbara, Calif., will discuss the importance of security architectures for military systems as well as the role of POSIX compliance and other modernization issues.
