  Planning a Ballistic Missile Defense System of Systems
To be fair, the developers of the C1 system recognize the desirability of "openness," and their design appears to leave modest room for future enhancement (i.e., to C2).
Moreover, a single-mode system would lack the redundancy and adaptability of a system of systems and could therefore be vulnerable to failure or a well-focused countermeasure strategy.
Generally speaking, a system of systems is more adaptable because it permits improvement within any of its layers, depending on the evolution of the threat and the progress of technology.

  System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
System (from the Latin (systēma), and this from the Greek σύστημα (sustēma)) is an assemblage of elements comprising a whole with each element related to other elements.
Depending on the type of system, a system can often be distinguished from individual (simple) machines, elements or processes of that system by the number, arrangements and complexity of those elements.
In the human body, such systems are referred to as the nervous system, the circulatory system, the digestive system, the reproductive system, and the respiratory system.

 Operating system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As well as the kernel, an operating system is often distributed with tools for programs to display and manage a graphical user interface (although Windows and the Macintosh have these tools built into the operating system), as well as utility programs for tasks such as managing files and configuring the operating system.
One notable early operating system was CP/M, which was supported on many early microcomputers and was largely cloned in creating MS-DOS, which became wildly popular as the operating system chosen for the IBM PC (IBM's version of it was called IBM-DOS or PC-DOS), its successors making Microsoft one of the world's most profitable companies.
Mainframe operating systems, such as IBM's z/OS, and embedded operating systems such as VxWorks, eCos, and Palm OS, are usually unrelated to Unix and Windows, except for Windows CE, Windows NT Embedded 4.0 and Windows XP Embedded which are descendants of Windows, and several *BSDs, and Linux distributions tailored for embedded systems.

 Computer system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A typical computer system employs a computer that uses programmable devices to store, retrieve, and process data.
Many computer systems can interconnect, that is, join to become a bigger system.
If two computer systems define the same protocols, they may be capable of interconnecting and become a part of a larger system.

 What is Systems Theory?
Systems theory was proposed in the 1940's by the biologist Ludwig von Bertalanffy (
Systems analysis, developed independently of systems theory, applies systems principles to aid a decisIon-maker with problems of identifying, reconstructing, optimizing, and controlling a system (usually a socio-technical organization), while taking into account multiple objectives, constraints and resources.
Systems theory is closely connected to cybernetics, and also to system dynamics, which models changes in a network of coupled variables (e.g.

 Natty Gur : Building a System-of-Systems
An ideal system is a system which enables its applications to share and interchange information between one and another, of course each application can retain its own data differently from another, but the interchanging should be transparent and considerable to appropriate security policy.
System stability is one of the important goals of a robust system, most of the organization will dispersed the application components over several servers and will implement a Load Balancing component which handles and routes the system requests.
System components that aren’t part of the application flow, usually batch process, should be activate from other server then the applications servers.

The second required AI subsystem for the "System of Systems" "information grid" to provide assured information dominance is a subsystem that assists in optimizing and managing bandwidth and communications nodes and networks.
Complementing the NL system would be underlying voice, pattern, and visual recognition systems all supporting and confirming and denying human input and analysis.
To accomplish this progressive concept, complex interdependent and layered AI system applications could be used to manage this extremely complex "information grid." The concepts discussed here only introduce a small portion of the vastness of the problem in gaining information dominance through the "System of Systems" "information grid" with the support of AI.

 STSC CrossTalk - Managing Requirements for a System of Systems - Aug 2004
Writing requirements to interface to these existing systems is generally straightforward, involving an understanding of what the new system must do to interface to the existing system.
In those cases where a requirement is allocated to more than one system, the affected managers must work with their counterparts to define the interfaces.
The manager of that system can concur that the requirement is correct, or can state that he or she is planning changes that would invalidate the requirement.

Such a system might pro­duce significant efficiencies in terms of sharing skills, knowledge, and scarce high-value assets, building capacity and redundancy as well as gain­ing the synergy of providing a common operating picture and being able to readily share information.
Put even more simply, a system of systems means knowing what the system knows and being able to act on that information.
Combining such a system with other systems, such as those that record bio­metric measurements[19] to identify individuals accurately, would further limit fraud and other deceptions used to circumvent border screening.
