Abstract
Information Dominance is the key metric in today's battlefield. Reliance on data and management of data and the accuracy and integrity of that data are paramount to mission success. Metadata enables solutions to many problems of integrity of data. As the data becomes more distributed, virtual, and ubiquitous, current methods of centralized metadata and version control are not responsive to mission needs and are not scaleable to network centric operations. Phase I will extend existing agents to create an evaluation prototype Adaptive Metadata Integrity Analysis (AMIA) system. AMIA will evaluate decentralized development, tracking, and analysis of metadata in a network centric mission environment. This evaluation will be explicitly focused on scalability and responsiveness to the network centric warfare environment. AMIA evaluation will assess integrity of metadata on various objects developed locally and used locally as well as global data usage. AMIA phase I evaluation will provide evaluation of the control signals and risks related to adapting the level and quantity of metadata captured and retained across the network.
