This paper proposes a design of message oriented modeling and analysis tool (MOMAT) for naval combat systems (NCS). NCS is composed of heterogeneous and large-scale components such as communication services and data distribution services (DDS). Each component consists of massive and heterogeneous interfaces and modules that are designed by many developers. Furthermore, MOMAT has to meet the requirements of NCS as follows. First, MOMAT has to be able to control multiple parts such as components, interfaces, messages and publisher/subscriber. Secondly, it should improve the application performance in terms of response time and execution time. Thirdly, the scalability of application functions has to be guaranteed for system integration of NCS with heterogeneous sub-parts. Implementation results show that the MOMAT is suitable for naval combat systems regarding task processing time and database access time.
