This paper presents general software optimization techniques to improve software performance and energy consumption in embedded systems. Software optimization can be categorized into three levels: algorithmic, source code-level. Then these techniques are applied to optimize our tactical message processing software, which is a message encoder-decoder for tactical communication equipped on weapon systems. The optimized software achieved performance increase of about 12%, memory access decrease of 72% and memory usage decrease of 35% over the original software.
