Development of military software is mainly done by large companies specialized on the military domain. For security reasons high barriers for market entry exist, which excludes small companies and independent developers. This leads to monopolization inducing long development cycles as well as labored and cost-intensive development processes. The idea of a military app store as a distribution platform for military software could be one way to overcome these issues. Enabling independent developers and small companies to develop software for such an app store fosters agile and fast software development targeted to the users demands. However for security reasons this is not possible today. This paper presents a concept for a development process that enables independent developers to write software for the military domain. Our concept lowers the barrier for market entry significantly while keeping the high security standards. Opening the development process in such a way is an important prerequisite for the realization of military app stores.
