This thesis focuses on an analysis of the dynamic behavior of software designed for future Department of Defense systems. The DoD is aware that as software becomes more complex, it will become extremely critical to have the ability for components to change themselves by swapping or modifying components, changing interaction protocols, or changing its topology. The Defense Advanced Research Programs Agency formed the Dynamic Assembly for Systems Adaptability, Dependability, and Assurance (DASADA) program in order to task academia and industry to develop dynamic gauges that can determine run-time composition, allow for the continual monitoring of software for adaptation, and ensure that all user defined properties remain stable before and after composition and deployment. Through the study, a review of all the DASADA technologies were identified as well as a thorough analysis of all 19 project demonstrations. This thesis includes a template built using the object-oriented methodologies of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) that will allow for functional and non-functional decomposition of any DASADA software technology project. In addition, this thesis includes insightful conclusions and recommendations on those DASADA projects that warrant further study and review.
