Documents the initial results of work aimed at understanding the software life cycle and at identifying the resources the Air Force commits to its various phases. Examines some commonly held ideas about the development and support of embedded computer system (ECS) software. Seeks to develop an understanding of how ECS software is acquired and supported, to assess the characteristics of the ECS software support task facing the Air Force today and in the near future, and to illuminate emerging issues and possible problem areas. These subjects are examined primarily in the context of operational flight program and automatic test equipment software applications.
