Abstract
The Afloat Master Planning System (AMPS) module of the Navy Data Environment is the authoritative data source for the Fleet Commander Command, Control, Computers, Communication, Combat systems, and Intelligence (C5I) baseline. AMPS has evolved in response to emergent requirements without planning in a larger architectural context. The resulting system contains multiple interfaces for common tasks, lack of business rule protection for key data interfaces, and entangled code that is difficult to maintain and reuse. AMPS is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain and is having difficulty responding to the increasing requirements for secure data interchanges with other data sources. Additionally, there is a growing requirement to include planning information for classified systems and provide AMPS-based analysis that includes classified information. AMPS has added a SECRET enclave to provide this capabilities, but the movement of data between unclassified and classified AMPS is a largely manual process. There is a rapidly growing need to move data between these two enclaves (and possibly more) in a much more effective manner. The objective of Phase I is to demonstrate the applicability of an SOA solution to the architectural issues present within AMPS and then to develop a plan to transition AMPS to an SOA framework.
