Abstract
Harmonia, Inc. proposes to address human/computer interface (HCI) issues faced by the DD(X) program by investigating new and "breakthrough" software tools that utilize the User Interface Markup Language (UIML). The proposed tools interface with commercial off-the-shelf products and are designed to streamline the HCI design and development process without forcing DD(X) personnel to significantly change the process they currently follow. The approach centers on working closely with the ship system integrator industry to form project execution and implementation teams; obtaining input from experienced individuals to focus on developing software technologies that promote commonality within the Total Ship Computing Environment (TSCE), thus adhering to the Navy's proposed Open Architecture Computing Environment guidelines and reducing lifecycle costs. Harmonia has identified six DD(X) engineering problem areas and possible UIML-based tools to address them. During Phase I Harmonia will define requirements, identify potential risks, conduct selected prototyping activities, and assess the commercial viability of each technology to determine which have the most potential benefit for the DD(X) program and should thus be prototyped in Phase II
