Dynamic Application and Model Updating System (DYNAMUS)
Timely and efficient access to information resources drives successful Battle Command (BC) operations, particularly information collection, management, and analysis. Authoritative sources supporting BC applications must be developed to satisfy dynamic needs of active units, incorporating features as they arise and are identified after initial deployment. Ultimately, the data models for these sources must be dynamic, allowing for modification without recompilation or redistribution. Furthermore, data model Software Development Kits (SDKs) should enable the design and development of applications that can effectively exploit dynamic updates to the model, also without recompilation. To ensure dynamic updates do not disrupt users of applications, it is essential to warn model architects of potential disruptions throughout the editing process. These capabilities support timely and non-disruptive distribution of updates while maintaining operational effectiveness, usefulness, interoperability, and multilevel security. Based on the results of our Phase I effort, we propose this Phase II effort to design and develop a full-scope prototype Dynamic Application and Model Updating System (DYNAMUS). DYNAMUS provides a dynamic data model that includes the metadata required to track and visualize changes to the data model, an SDK that supports the development of dynamic applications, and editing tools that support model architects while preventing application disruptions.
