Abstract:

The modern military's information processing needs are continually and rapidly changing due to broadening operational requirements, conflict areas, and adversaries. To effectively provide our warfighters with information superiority, a mechanism to dynamically alter an automated systems functionality and visualization must be provided. To address this need SPS proposes to develop the Rapid Application Builder Based on Internet Technologies (RABBIT). RABBIT is an innovative combination of end-user, model-based RAD techniques, GIS display capabilities, military and Internet-based standards, and architecture driven component-based application development. RABBIT combines these capabilities in an environment that supports end-user composition of complex applications. The Phase I effort will generate a specification and early demonstration of RABBIT. The Phase II will build RABBIT based upon a commercial integrated development environment that supports non-programmed component composition. RABBIT will be developed by a highly qualified team from software Productivity Solutions whose expertise spans model-based RAD, Internet development standards and technologies, and software architectural driven component-based reuse. RABBIT will be highly viable in the commercial marketplace as the growth of the Internet further increases application demand and the need for end-user application development becomes the only viable approach to satisfying this need. BENEFITS: The need for end-user composition of complex applications is driven by rapid requirements evolution in both military and commercial markets. Applications incorporating GIS displays are becoming commonplace as an effective means of visualizing enterprise information. The Internet and component based application development is rapidly becoming the computing paradigm of choice for all types of application. Technology developed under this SBIR which integrates true end-user RAD, GIS display technology, Internet standards, and architecture driven, component based application development will provide a highly differentiated product in area of application development tools.
