MODAF System Requirements Document (SRD) Guide

Keywords MODAF MODAF guide system requirements document

SV-1 Systems Interface Description shows the interfaces that the new system needs to support. It also shows the interdependencies with other systems (and therefore other IPTs and/or suppliers), with which the supplier of the new system will need to co-operate. Additionally, it shows the nodes to which the supplier needs to deliver systems, and supports an understanding of its fit within the Concept of Operations (ConOps).

SV-2 consists of several sub-Views, shown above. These are all key Views to specify and assure interoperability between systems. They specify the network protocols at each network layer; show the compatibility of these protocols between interfacing systems; and show how these interfacing systems can be logically grouped into nodes, to reduce the number of point-to-point connections required.

SV-3 System to System Matrix identifies which of the potential communications paths shown graphically in SV-1 form the key system to system interfaces, presenting them in a matrix format to identify all required interfaces.

SV-6 Systems Data Exchange Matrix shows the characteristics of the data that will be sent over the interface connections identified in SV-1 and SV-3. This enables network capacity analysis to ensure that the network will have the required bandwidth available to support these interface requirements and may be used to support the development of the system data models.

This guide intends to provide the key information about the MOD Architectural Framework (MODAF) Views required for
the development of a Systems Requirement Document (SRD). More detailed information can be found in the Acquisition
