1.3.1 Modeling DoDAF Compliant Architectures The Telelogic Approach for Complying with the DoD Architectural Framework

2005 INCOSE International Symposium  
No industry is more demanding than aerospace-defense when it concerns the complete integration of software and hardware architectures. Tasked with defending our nascent Information Age economy, the aerospace-defense industry must be capable of waging Information Age warfare, whose key concepts include information superiority and network-centric warfare. By most quantitative metrics, aerospacedefense systems are among the largest and most complex ever constructed. The complexity of individual

This white paper describes a technical approach for improving how we specify system and system-of-systems architectures using frameworks in general, and the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) in particular. The modeldriven approach to architectural frameworks explained here, which is based on UML™ 2.0, Telelogic TAU® Generation2™, and Telelogic DOORS®, can substantially improve productivity and quality.
