AbstractWe propose to develop a secure runtime environment for fuselet-based missile targeting and threat analysis built on a foundation of aspect-oriented secure web services. Aspect-oriented techniques enable the modularization of crosscutting concerns such as remote access, security, transactions, and monitoring. We will compose aspect-oriented instrumentation with distributed object technologies in a noninvasive and orthogonal manner, and leverage this infrastructure to build the server and remote administration tools required for the secure registration, execution, control, and monitoring of fuselets that subscribe to multiple sensor sources and publish decision-quality missile threat and targeting information. In particular we will address the needs for cross-platform interoperability as well as the fine-grained demands of tracking and data fusion in the MDA application domain. Our efforts will have significant impact in realizing a compact and high-performance architecture for fuselet execution that can adapt to a wide range of security mechanisms and service substrates, and will enable the viable application of JBI fuselet technologies to the domain of missile defense.
