dc.description.abstract This dissertation addresses system architecture concepts for the implementation of real-time distributed systems. In particular, it addresses the requirements of a specific mission and real-time critical distributed system application as this exemplifies most of the issues of concern. Of specific significance is the integration of real-time distributed data services into a platform-wide Information Management Infrastructure. The dissertation commences with an overview of the system-level allocated requirements. Derived requirements for an Information Management Infrastructure (IMI) are then determined. A generic system architecture is then presented in terms of the allocated and derived requirements. A specific topology, based on this architecture, as well as available technology, is described. The scalability of the architecture to -different platforms, including non-surface platforms, is discussed. As financial considerations are an important design driver and constraint, some anticipated order-of-magnitude system acquisition costs for a range of system complexities and configurations are briefly reviewed. Finally some conclusions and recommendations within the context of the allocated and derived requirements, as well as the RSA's politico-economic environment, are offered. en_ZA
