Abstract Evolutionary Systems are those that are capable of accomodating change over an extended system lifetime with reduced risk and cost/schedule impact. Most of our complex defense systems depend on software for their successful operation and, as a result, the software in those systems is the prmary vehicle for adapting to change. The EDCS (Evolutionary Design of Complex Software) Program is providing for the development and experimental application of new software technologies which can enable significant improvements in miltary mission effectiveness and information superiority. The goal is the capability to produce software intensive military systmes that are highly flexible and adaptable to meet changing requirements --- evolutionary systems.In addition to DARPA, the EDCS Program is co-sponsored by USAF Rome Laboratory, USAF Wright Laboratory, US Army Missile Command, and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Technical management is provided jointly by the DoD Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and Rome Laboratory. Rome Laboratory is DARPA's primary contracting agent.EDCS is organized into 5 Technology Clusters:1. Rationale Capture and Software Understanding2. Architecture and Generation3. High Assurance / Real-Time4. Information Management5. Dynamic LanguagesThis paper contains a short description of each cluster.
