CDAS Web Interface Services (CWIS)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
In the last five years, the Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) has made Network-centric Joint Time Critical Targeting (TCT) a major focus of its annual JFCOM exercises. The current ARDEC Combat Decision Aiding System (CDAS) application, which provides an order of magnitude improvement in TCT is currently unable to interface to the JFCOM web-services environment, hence cannot provide its services to JFCOM. CDAS transition to JFCOM is a high priority. CHI Systems intends to solve this problem by creating a reusable, portable software component called CDAS Web Interface Services (CWIS). CWIS will be a plug in CDAS component which will interface to the JFCOM web-based environment via Extended Markup Language (XML). The component will perform the SOAP, UDDI, and WSDL services needed within the JFCOM environment, and serve as a translator between the JFCOM environment and the CDAS tactical targeting database. CWIS will provide the means to allow CDAS to communicate with other JFCOM TCT systems such as the Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS) and Theater Battle Management and Control System (TBMCS) in order to provide advanced CDAS TCT capabilities. This will provide a clear transition path for CDAS, whereby CDAS TCT capabilities are available to all JFCOM clients.
