Title: Datagram Segregation Open Systems Service Approach

Contract: N00024-11-C-4158
Award Amount: $299,988.00


The Packaged Ontology Certificate Real Time Model (PONC-RTM) Investigation of Phase I developed the concept for extending an enterprise information architecture to make use of PONCs integrated at the datagram level to automate the validation, routing, and control of information that is at the correct and validated security level, appropriate (need to know) for the receiver, and relevant to the group/organization. The innovative approach combines the power of ontology-based reasoning components in a service-oriented architecture that automates the process of making intelligent decisions with regard to security restrictions, purpose, and context of datagram delivery. In Phase II effort, focus is on the development of the prototype elements of the PONC-RTM; a SOA-compatible PONC RTM service, and a local PONC-RTM service adaptor used by HLA federate applications. Although the elements support HLA and DIS, they would be protocol independent, allowing for use beyond HLA based environments. The instantiation of the PONC-RTM service adaptor in Federate Applications brings awareness of the context of the source, destination, and content, characteristics through validation of a subset of ontology relevant to scenario participants.
