No real system can yet stand this correctnesschecking overhead. Software reusability, when widely achieved, will play a big role in reducing errors. If a software package has been executing error-free in the field for an extended period, under widely varying, perhaps stressful, operating conditions, and if it is then applied to a new situation, one strongly expects that it may also work error free in this new situation. In fact, this quality of reuse is probably more important than any directly attributable cost savings.

However, as in all things, there is a price to pay for this extraordinary capability. The first price to pay is that the right set of facts for every needed object must be in the knowledge base on the computer. Someone must have previously declared the object, discovered the associated facts, and loaded each into the computer. This is difficult, time-consuming, error-prone work. All aerospace systems contain elements that are unique in terms of knowledge domain and application. Thus, it is unlikely that the knowledge base is complete or even exists at all.

By saturating enemy defenses, the cruise missile enhances the penetrability of the carrier aircraft. The missile software is written in assembly language while the aircraft software is written in FORTRAN, COBOL, and assembly language. The software for the AGM-86 program consists of four major types: operational flight, mission planning, support, and automatic test equipment software. The operational flight software is composed of missile software and carrier software. The missile software performs 10 primary functions.
