Military & Aerospace Electronics' Webcast on Software Modernization in Military Systems, featuring industry experts from Aonix and Green Hills Software, took place Thursday, Nov. 30.

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 discussed solutions to these problems and more.

Kelvin Nilsen, chief technology officer of real-time software provider Aonix North America Inc. in San Diego drove 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 Outdated COTS tools and inefficient languages further complicate development of ever expanding and more complex embedded and real-time systems, Nilsen points out.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., discussed the importance of security architectures for military systems as well as the role of POSIX compliance and other modernization issues.
