The Department of Defense (DOD) is seeking software system requirements for the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) End to End System, which comprises both ATACMS and all sensors, links, and command centers which enable integration across system and service boundaries. The complexity, multiple interfaces, and joint nature of planned ATACMS operations demands accurate specification of software system requirements. DOD also desires automated tools capable of developing rapid prototypes to assist in system definition and reduce system risk. The goals of this thesis are to provide a rigorous model which can be utilized to validate current specifications, and, to demonstrate CAPS on a large scale project Accomplishment of these two would provide a needed corroboration of the ATACMS specification, as well as move CAPS out of the purely academic environment The result of this thesis is mixed. Due to a paucity of data from which to derive the requirements, the model is generic in nature and is in need of significant customer evaluation, which is not forthcoming. However, CAPS demonstrated its fundamental concept within the bounds of the project, with refinements in code generation, interface, and graphics either incorporated or identified. CAPS is ready for use on an actual project by an experience team of systems analysts.
