Abstract

This paper is an initial work-in-progress report on a joint effort between MITRE and the S EI in the development of an experimental prototype of a responsive airborne radar system. This effort employs: (1) analytic redundancy to guard against application level software errors, (2) runtime isolation and fault containment techniques to guard against programming system level software errors such as illegal addressing, and (3) generalized rate monotonie scheduling techniques to guard against timing errors.

Key Words
