Abstract
To allow affordable technology infusion into the E-2C a GIG middleware portal is required to adapt information semantic meaning and syntactical structure across information producers and consumers. The portal must interface to both commercial andmilitarized middleware products. Once established, the portal will be used to rapidly increasing operational capability and Fleet deliveries into an E-2C Global Information Grid (GIG)-enabled architecture.Our approach to this problem will provide theability for new applications to automatically identify and receive the GIG-wide data that they require, to exchange the data that they produce to the rest of the GIG, and be portable to any hardware or operating system, using an innovated application basedcommercial Web Services, Global Grid Forum and Semantic Web technologies, and the GIG and Joint Battlespace Infosphere (JBI) initiatives within the services. Our proposed research and development effort focuses on solving the root of the problem -exchanging information that is semantically defined different, and structurally incompatible. For the Middleware Portal to be affective, two applications must be able to exchange information about
