<p>A case study that shows the feasibility of using computer-aided prototyping to validate a C/sup 3/I system's requirements is presented, and the enabling technology is described. The C/sup 3/I prototype developed has characteristics typical of embedded software, including distributed processing, hard real-time constraints, multiple, predefined hardware interfaces, and complex requirements. A color, multiwindow executable Ada prototype that can process tactical data from multiple interfaces in real time was generated. The prototype was used to get feedback about the proposed design's effectiveness, performance, and structure and to evaluate the soundness of the design decisions.</p>
