Abstract
While Strike Force Interoperability (SFI) has long been a complex and challenging task that complexity is dramatically increasing. A number of factors account for this including the increasing integration and intercommunication of warfare systems components, the ad hoc and dynamic composition of deploying strike forces, the integration of multiple disparate modernization processes, and the increasing use of coalition forces as integral members of strike groups. The existing tools, processes, and data sources are no longer sufficient to fully communicate and protect the interoperability of our deploying naval forces. Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) are the technical and commercial response to these same issues. They are based around the decomposition of complex web-based applications into web-service components. A primary advantage of an SOA is the natural separation of business logic, data, and user interface. This provides a natural mechanism for third-party interface with business-logic protected data. The overarching goal of Phase II of this project is to SOA-enable the ECCB subsystem of AMPS and to establish a cross-domain SOA architecture enabling the secure exchange of ECCB information across security boundaries.
