Abstract
The size, interdependencies, and complexity of Navy software intensive warfare systems are continuing to rapidly increase. Numerous studies and reports indicate that the majority of DoD/Navy warfare system development efforts are failing to consistently successfully deliver high quality software systems on schedule and within budget. This paper provides several examples of successful development efforts that utilized Naval Surface Warfare Center (WC) in-house expertise to successfully deliver open architecture (OA)''based multi-system and multi-platform capable software systems with reusable components. This paper also provides insight into how government in-house software expertise can be utilized to mitigate many of the documented software system acquisition challenges that prevent the successful development and delivery of high quality software systems on schedule and within budget.
