Research Institution
We propose to define a universal graphics interchange format which extends existing Extensible Markup Language (XML) graphics languages such as SVG and XGL so as to enable portability among display formats for the test and evaluation (T&E) of aircraft andspace systems, to design a unified framework for interoperability which specifies mappings between formats as multi-stage XML StyleSheet Transformation Language (XSLT) transforms, and to develop enterprise component wrappers for these XSLT-basedtranslation services. The provision of a common graphics format and enterprise XML translator components is, we posit, vital to enable display reuse as well as the effective integration of XML and web technologies into display systems. Our efforts seek toyield robust and extensible enterprise XML graphics translator services, and to serve as a transformational framework for the interchange of other vendor-specific graphics formats in the larger commercial arena.A suite of web-enabled XML graphicstranslation components will prove of great utility to the defense sector which is rapidly adopting XML as a military information standard in many large-scale projects. The transformational conversion technologies will have dual use in the commercialsector.
