WMSM ) and Maritime Patrol Coastal (WPC). The System Architecture Description Document (SADD), which describes architectural framework that is used to establish the rules, guidance, and product descriptions for developing and presenting architecture descriptions that ensure a common denominator for understanding, comparing, and integrating architectures needs to be written for the WPC. The SADD has been written, established and contractual agreed upon for both the Large and Medium Cutters. However, their missions dictate that they have littoral capabilities and the capacity to conduct missions with naval vessels; therefore the C4ISR architecture was chosen for their SADD as it fits their mission statements. The mission of the WPC is of a different nature. It is not expected to carry out the same functions as the larger cutters and its capabilities will be more of a littoral function. Therefore the application of its architectural Framework will enable architectures to contribute most effectively to building an interoperable and cost effective system subject to the needs of the WPC mission. This thesis proposes to compare two different architectural frameworks for use by the WPCâ s SADD: 1) DoD Architecture Framework and 2) Zachman Architecture Framework. The thesis will compare and recommend the architectural framework that will at most enhance the mission statement set forth by the Original Requirements Document (ORD) of the WPC.
