Critical Code: Software Producibility for Defense assesses the growing importance of software for national security and examines how the U.S. Department of Defense can most effectively meet its future software needs.
  Preliminary Observations on DoD Software Research Needs and Priorities: A Letter Report responds to a request from the Department of Defense (DoD) for preliminary feedback regarding the Committee on Advancing Software-Intensive Systems Producibility's observations on DoD needs and priorities for software research as well as suggestions for a research agenda that would be executable within the DoD’s Science and Technology framework.
  Summary of a Workshop on Software-Intensive Systems and Uncertainty at Scale
This report summarizes the workshop on uncertainty at scale in the context of software-intensive systems producibility, held January 17, 2007, in Washington, D.C., under the auspices of the National Research Council's (NRC's) Committee on Advancing Software-Intensive Systems Producibility. The workshop was structured to gather inputs and insights from the commercial and military software and system development communities looking at the current and future challenges that surround engineering uncertainty, system complexity, and scale
