Title: Who/What/When/Where/How/Why Approach to Designing RHAPSODy for real-time collaboration and coordination
Agency: DOD
Contract: W15P7T-12-C-A123
Award Amount: $99,996.00


Harmonia proposes to design a means to provide a thin-client collaboration and coordination environment suitable for use in the real-time environment of the warfighter with a focus on Electronic Warfare (EW) system operators. This will be accomplished through performing thorough analyses of both the EW system environment and of enabling web technologies such as Ozone Widget Framework (OWF) and HTML5. Harmonia will utilize knowledge gained from performing work (1) developing"common picture"widgets using OWF for the Navy C2RPC system, (2) implementing collaboration and coordination capabilities for the Navy and DARPA, and (3) applying strategies involving hardening and caching to ensure system performance on Disconnected, Intermittent, Limited Communications (DIL) networks to provide a best-fit concept architecture utilizing modern, web-based technologies to meet the Army needs for real-time, two-way collaboration and coordination capabilities. The goal of our approach is to provide a means for increased information sharing and communication by EW operators to ultimately provide commanders with greater flexibility for battle management strategies not by simply performing a study of technologies but by focusing on answering the six key questions of Who, What, When, Where, How, and Why to get to the heart of the Army EW collaboration and coordination needs.
