The Air Force will soon have access to technology that helps identify design quality issues – which tend to drive cost and schedule overruns – in proposed new software-based systems.
With support from the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer Program, Massachusetts-based Silverthread Inc. developed a software tool to assist acquisition managers in evaluating software proposals. The idea is to provide better insight during the acquisition process to mitigate risk, and improve financial and operational performance.
The tool is also designed to boost cyber security resiliency in software and help the owning organization avoid being locked into a specific vendor.
