F16 Project Management Software Code Upgradation Analysis

by findsteps


Factors that influence software project management includes project size, delivery time, budgets and costs, application domain, technology to be implemented, system constraints, user requirements and available resources.

F-16 is a multirole jet fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force. It is used now by Air Force of thirty countries. F-16 aircraft has computers that are fixed inside its structure. These computers provide high-tech solutions for complicated environments that pose multiple threats of modern generation of weapons.

The core strength of the computers fixed in F-16 is its software known as the Operational Flight Program (OFP). F-16 has many classified information and several versions and types of weapons for the operational flight programme. The entire F-16 system hardware is enabled by the Operational Flight Program, which consists of a series of software modules. Each Operational Flight Program software module identifies the functions of a separate weapon system or operating systems.

The aim of this study is to analyse the software capabilities of the F-16 Operational Flight Program and to update it from time to time.
