Abstract : The Defense Science Board Task Force on Acquiring Defense Software Commercially recognizes that DoD systems are becoming increasingly dependent on the use of software as the mechanism for implementing operational capabilities. To adapt to changing military and national security situations, DoD is more dependent than ever on its ability to modify mission software rapidly, often in near real-time. However, software remains the schedule and cost driver for the development and maintenance of many important defense systems
