Air Force Automates Software Risk Assessment using Harmonia Tool

Harmonia, in conjunction with Reservoir Labs, is creating a tool called SPAA: Software Priority Assurance Assessment to assist the Air Force in rapid risk assessment of commercial software used in weapon systems.

The completed tool will provide a way to quickly — and with limited resources — do an initial assessment of the risk in using certain non-Air Force developed software codes for weapon systems. This reduces time and effort required for certification and accreditation (C&A) through prioritizing risk, and generating the evidence in documentation required for certifying authorities.

The SPAA tool leverages prior work done by Harmonia and Reservoir Labs in automating software assurance assessment for the Joint Tactical Radio Systems (JTRS) community.
