The SOLUTE team’s Phase I technical approach consists primarily of a feasibility study assessing the viability of a Navy implementation of the algorithms, standards, and protocols that comprise Google's Wave technology. Of specific concern is Wave’s ability to handle varying bandwidth and DIL communications channels associated with Navy platforms. While computer science research in the field of operational transform theory points positively toward a viable Navy implementation of the Wave Federation Protocol, detailed examination of the specific algorithms in collaboration with Wave project engineers at Google is required. Phase I includes assessment of Wave’s capability to fully handle the functionalities and capabilities required by Navy C2 needs. Our research will investigate this from a general perspective, conducting a thorough analysis of baseline functionality requirements for web-based applications. Additionally, our research will specifically explore wave gadgets and robots for supporting rich collaborative mapping and rich collaborative chat applications. Lastly, the Wave client in its current form neglects robust security measures. This research will include identification of minimum security and role based permissions required to support the Navy C2 hierarchy.
