Configuration History


Note that the NATO AF 3.1 documentation isn’t yet in a consistent state - it appears to be in the process of changing Subview to View but still has view meaning both an individual (view) specification and a collection of (view) specifications. It is also confused between a view as a specification and the product of that specification. See NATO AF v3.1 - Is It Now Time to Merge MODAF and the NATO AF?
