MIL-STD-498 is the DoD's new software development standard.
It was developed with four primary objectives:
Merge DOD-STD-2167A, used for weapon systems, with DOD-STD-7935A,

software development standard for DoD.
Resolve issues raised in the use of these standards.
Ensure compatibility with current DoD directives,

Provide a basis for United States implementation of
ISO/IEC 12207, Software Life Cycle Processes.
