Products Developed: (While an AEGIS C &ampD Engineer

  • Lockheed Martin

A program that verifies that FILE, FUNCTION, and CLASS commenting standards are met by the developers. SAN II supports multiple programming languages in the same or in multiple files. Adding another language involves adding code that supports only differences between what is already there and the new language.

  • Source Metrics Tool: (SMT): Lockheed Martin

A system that counts Source Lines of Code (SLOCS) in multiple programing languages.  New languages are added by writing an SMT script (META description) of how SLOCs are to be counted in a programming language. Currently more than 25 distinct programming languages are supported and others are being added on a monthly basis.

  • Retargeter:  Lockheed Martin

A Framework for developing AEGIS software in a non-MTASS/CMS2 environment.  This Framework included CMS-2 to C/C++ and/or Ada compilers.  The user can step through the CMS2 code in the gnu debugger (gdb) on a UNIX work station, and inspect values of variables.  The underlying language is C/C++, but the developer sees only CMS2. in the debugger window.
This 86,000 line tool also can instrument the resulting C++/C program with additional lines of code.  These additional lines of code perform can one or more of the following functions:  test coverage, cross profiling for the UNISYS UYK series of computers. While running on an UNIX Work Station, checking consistency of engineering units and dimensions as the CMS-2 executes, the retargeter was used extensively across all of AEGIS to capture CMS-2 as C/C++, and has saved AEGIS at least $100 million and possibly as much as $900 million over the last number of years.

 

  • The UYKxx Dump Analyzer: Lockheed Martin

This system provides multiple ways to view the information generated during a UYKxx computer memory dump.  The Dump Analyzer voted best tool in its class.

 

  • NAVASTIR:  Singer Kearfort Corporation

A Framework and Meta-Programming system for developing and testing Navigation, Steering and Guidance computer programs.  The Navastir Framework provided for a 500% improvement in productivity in the development of navigation and guidance computer software

 

Innovation

 

  • Afd2me Lockheed Martin

A family of translators which convert ACSIS/ACP menus to OASIS menus.  A fully mature afd2me tool would convert a single baseline of 1200 ACP menus to OASIS menus in about 10 minutes.  The latest BOE for this task for a single ACP/OASIS baseline is $21 million.  When the conversion of many ACP baselines is needed, the afd2me is the only affordable approach.
