Abstract"The goal of this Phase I SBIR project is to successfully demonstrate SOAP-based integration (SOAPi) of Missile Defense Agency (MDA) information systems exposed as Web Services (SOAPi Services). This will lead to a Phase II prototype system, in which wewill demonstrate large-scale, distributed systems integration using emerging industry standards, such as SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI. This implementation of the emerging b2b Web Services model will demonstrate more efficient, less costly, and more extensiblesystems integration within the military and commerical sectors. During Phase I, we will assess MDA's current and near-future knowledge infrastructure by studying existing and emerging domain-specific metadata schemas. We will derive the most suitablemessage passing schema for use within MDA, military and commercial SOAP-based brokering architectures. Finally, we will design and demonstrate a SOAP-based brokering architecture for development of a full prototype in Phase II. During the Phase Iproject, we will aggressively seek Fast Track sponsorship from MDA, other military, and commercial sources. Given the outstanding requirement for information integration within military and commercial infrastructures, we anticipate a high level ofinterest in and return from this research. The immediate benefits to MDA include more efficient, less costly, and more extensible integration of existing and emerging distributed systems using cutting-edg
