An update of the Military Standard 499 has been developed for use by the Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) of the US Air Force Space Command. It is intended that this standard will be used to define the government requirements for an executable contractor systems engineering process for SMC system acquisitions.
This document is not intended for use outside the domain of the Space and Missile Systems Center. However there is nothing to prevent other acquisition agencies from using this standard for their own systems engineering efforts.
The draft of Mil-Std-499C dated 24 March 2005 will be revised at least one more time this year and submitted for publication as a military standard by the end of 2005.
If you would like to participate in the review of this draft standard, please contact Charles Halligan. The draft standard may be downloaded from the INCOSE website in either Microsoft Word format (1.6 MB) or Adobe Acrobat format (2.3 MB). Comments are due by 24 June 2005 and should be provided on the submission form to facilitate incorporation of your feedback.
