Abstract
Rapid deployment of net-centric data integration capabilities requires a fundamental shift from traditional system-of-systems approaches to Service Oriented Architectures (SOA). Modus Operandi proposes an innovative refactoring strategy and set of tools to jump start the transition to SOA, named Keystone. With Keystone methods and tools, sustainment efforts for legacy Army Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems can reap the benefits of SOA while accelerating readiness for integration into the Distributed Common Ground System (DGCS) backbone. With Keystone tools, a systems engineer will be able to reverse engineer a legacy system Application Programming Interface (API), i.e. the interfaces of the legacy system components, and then rapidly construct service wrappers. More sophisticated services may then be composed from base services as well as legacy API calls. Thus the legacy system can transition to a more service-oriented architecture in an evolutionary manner without wholesale reengineering.
