Daniel H. Wagner Associates will demonstrate the feasibility of large-scale, real-time data management, especially of real-time target discrimination data, on a distributed, extensible, standards-based architecture capable of supporting Ground-basedMidcourse Defense (GMD) requirements during missile testing and research and, eventually, during missile defense operations. This Phase I project will leverage ongoing work for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), in which Wagner Associates is developing theSOAPi ServicesT architecture. When completed, this architecture will provide 1) real-time translation of large amounts of heterogeneous data from multiple sources into a coherent stream of metadata-enriched information in a common format, making use ofhigh-performance computing hardware as necessary, 2) real-time aggregation of heterogeneous data into useful information (i.e., specialized data complexes), 3) real-time syndication of customer-relevant information to systems and end-users anywhere on thenetwork (e.g., SIPRNET, MDAnet), and 4) near-real-time data archival using existing data management assets (e.g. databases, storage devices). SOAPi ServicesT will provide military, other government, and commercial end-users with the right information, atthe right time, and in the right format by utilizing specialized software agents and Web Services that operate based on domain-specific data models (i.e., schemas). Immediate benefits to GMD include 1) improved information management, especially ofreal-time target discrimination data, through domain-specific data modeling and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) data management products, 2) improved access to real-time and archived research and development (R&D) and missile test data through automatedtranslation, aggregation, and syndication of GMD-specific data to GMD information systems and end-users, and 3) reduced software lifecycle costs through the use of specialized software agents and Web Services providing distributed, efficient access toexisting and emerging systems on a plug-and-play architecture.
