AbstractThis proposal suggests that a basic data collection, management, and fusion framework is ideally suited for integrating distributed data from multiple heterogeneous sources and making it available on a multi-point basis for analysis, viewing, and C**4I applications. The basic framework proposed was built (and is currently under ongoing development) to support object-oriented, temporally consistent multi-point data collection, archival, and query. This environment is structured into three major C++ software components: (1) the Data Interchange Library, (2) the Data Collection Environment, and the (3) Data Viewing, Analysis, and Management Environment. This environment is supported on Win 32 platforms (i.e. Windows 95 and NT), Posix Platforms (i.e. Unix derivatives), and embedded system (DSPs, MS-DOS machines. and other microcontrollers). This effort will add to Cybernet's product developments associated with distributed data collection and fusion. These efforts will be commercialized through insertion into several dedicated test, measurement, and server/router products. These multiple product paths will assure effective commercial leveraqe for the planned development.
