Defense Architecture

Defense Architecture

Build capability-driven architectures that capture operational architecture, service-oriented architectures, and system-of-systems design and integration to understand current and future war-fighting needs.

Build project views and roadmaps on how capabilities will be enabled over time, by different systems, and understand the risk to capabilities due to system lifecycle states.

Use Model Based (data centric) approach using industry-standard frameworks such as Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF 2), NATO Architecture Framework (NAF), or the new Unified Architecture Framework (UAF).

Autogenerate standard DoDAF reports such as the AV-2, OV-3, or SV-6 -- or create your own reports on the fly in minutes with System Architect's easy to use native SQL reporting system.

Fit-for-Purpose Views & Analysis

Customize the metamodel to properly capture information in sources of record, and to visualize the information in different ways. Create new fit-for-purpose viewpoints -- new diagram types, symbol types, definition types, properties, relationships, and data centric rules.

Quickly get a 50,000-foot view of the architecture through System Architect's unique Network- and Landscape-style Explorer diagrams, that allow you to auto-visualize reports showing calculated (inferred) relationships between EA artifacts. Run analytics to ask the architecture questions and get answers visually on models, or by generating dashboards of analysis information.
