"The objective of this proposal is to further refine, develop and provide a proof of principal demonstration of MiTech's INCAPatPend network I/O performance enhancing technology reducing data latency, increasing processing efficiencies and improvingbandwidth utilization by nearly two orders of magnitude, making possible the addition of Network Centric Interoperability (NCI) functionality to future and existing BM/C3I TAMD systems. Test results of a software implementation of INCA on actual systemsand networks show almost two orders of magnitude increase in application level throughput of network data with complete interoperability with the significant investment in present and near term technologies. Retaining existing INCA interoperability withall AMCOM programs, computers, operating systems (OSs), communication protocols, network interface units and networks, will remain an objective for all Phases of the effort. The interoperability of the proposed final product will allow the application ofthe technology to existing systems, extending their life cycles by squashing NCI communications overhead. These top level objectives will assure timely, highly reliable, and secure interoperability for BM/C3I TAMD. The additional overhead from securecommunications is also directly addressed and reduced by the same factor of 250-750 % by the proposed development of MiTech's INCA I/O processing software architecture. The anticipated result, a
