Abstract
Using our 50+ person-years of experience with business process (BP) modeling, BPEL, SOA, and HCI design, we propose a real-time battle management solution for MDA that will coordinate with multiple dispersed and disparate weapon platforms in achieving accurate and reliable kill results for layered Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD). The system will be designed to globally optimize weapon-target solutions across the theater, regional, and global levels, but allow for weapon systems to retain control and responsibility for their own individual fire-control systems and endgames. We can dynamically align data models and messages from net-centric services via fuzzy logic, inference, and cognitive learning to overcome information disparities, unlike today’s static, not reconfigurable, data. Additionally, a catalog of abstract and reusable BPs allows the system to learn over time to reduce work for SMEs in future. Our reuse component helps expose web services for stovepiped but time-proven C2/C4I systems (e.g., GCCS-M, NTCSS, JPMIS, CLIP). Our techniques support composing then orchestrating efficient mission-oriented applications that infuse real-time data but meet system performance demands and QoS guarantees.
