Research Institution
The US Air Force requires the capability to control, upload and download management information in order to coordinate crew interactions, even when the crew is remotely located. Because of limitations in communication infrastructure and shared databases,it is difficult for collaborating engineers, planners, analysts, and military commanders to allocate these assets in a timely manner. This process also requires the use of systems like the MILSATCOM ACMS that does not provide sufficient coordinationsupport for large commercial satellite operators. A system more aligned with commercial practices such as WWW, CGI, and JAVA usage will offer the DoD further leverage as it upgrades its systems. A new generation of collaboration tools must be developedthat, while implemented in CGI and JAVA and distributing data as HTML, must mimic the useful attributes of existing tools. Cybernet intends to provide this system by developing a capability that will allow Air Force personnel to make simple requests forinformation using the World Wide Web, e-mail, FTP and other data via a JTA compliant interface. This design will also provide an ISA the capability for the remote administration of collaboration and database upload and download into Air Force installedcommon support stations.The system proposed in this effort would be used to enhance Cybernet's current network products. This market is composed of sophisticated individuals and small to medium sized business or workgroups in larger business or the U.S.Government. This group requires the flexibility that larger organizations achieve through extensive support teams, but do not have the resources to get it at the present time.
