Paper Abstract

The emergence over the past two decades of an active marketplace of commercial software products has dramatically changed the way computers are used. Many government information system, however, and especially such military systems as Command and Control Information Systems, have not been a big enough market to attract suppliers of commodity commercial software products, and indeed often have characteristics somewhat different from the general marketplace. COTS-based systems represent a way whereby the more specialized systems needed by the military can take whatever advantage they can from Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software products.
