Abstract"All DoD organizations handling mission-critical information are facing intense pressures to avoid costly, dangerous and potentially fatal "information breaks". Semandex Networks has assembled a team of experts in distributed computing and network softwareto pioneer a new category of information-distribution infrastructure based on the extensible Markup Language (XML) standard. The system automatically knows where content is and to which decision-makers it needs to be delivered, dramatically reducing theoccurrence of information breaks. A hierarchy of edge and core routers can be interconnected to ensure scalable, accurate, and timely information delivery, in a manner that could not otherwise be economically or technically realized. Semandex hascompleted the development of its edge router, and is now considering the challenges of building a high-speed core router capable of handling the aggregated traffic volume of several edge routers and high-speed data feeds.It is the objective of this Phase I SBIR to determine the feasibility of constructing a high-speed content router for time-critical C2 data and to demonstrate its architectural suitability to handle global information-intensive applications within the AirForce's Joint Battlespace Infosphere (JBI). Real-time content delivery is a requirement for applications in the financial, manufacturing, energy, corporate enterprise, government and military sectors. In all these segments,
