Abstract: This research investigated a new approach to stimulate innovation in the acquisition, production and evolution of cybersecure modular OA software systems. These systems increasingly incorporate Web-based, mobile, or low-cost microelectronic devices. Systems of these kinds must combine best-of-breed software components subject to agile, adaptive requirements of multiple parties, while conforming to reusable software products lines. We seek to make this a simpler, more transparent, and more tractable process. Our recent and continuing line of research studies, publications and reports demonstrate how complex OA systems can be designed, built, and deployed with alternative components and connectors resulting in functionally similar system versions, to satisfy overall system capability requirements as well as individual OA system component intellectual property (IP) and cybersecurity requirements. These requirements are surfacing new challenges that can decrease (or increase) software acquisition costs.
