CCT proposes a model driven composable architecture for C3I gateway systems that will provide a generic platform independent software toolkit for creation of communication gateways. This new approach will simplify interoperability of new and legacy systems by leveraging transport and semantic exchange standardization. Use of product line architecture methods will be employed to ensure large-scale system reuse, enabling component-based gateways to be generated from high-level specifications. Central to the scope of the gateway architectural approach is accommodation for variation and evolutionary extension of communications and exchange services. This dual focus on architectural strategy and standards is critical to dealing with the historical problems of stove piped architectures and N(N-1) interfaces between systems. The benefits of this approach include simplification of creation of domain specific gateways, and improved interoperability between systems. Phase 1 of the research evaluated alternative architectural strategies and methods for generation of gateways from the toolkit, culminating in a proof of concept prototype. Phase 2 will create a fully functional toolkit of reusable gateway components that can be automatically composed into operational configuration, demonstrating both systems interoperability of heterogeneous systems and method of instance specific generation.
