Research Institution
The consolidation of Air Force Laboratories into the single Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) integrates organizations in New York with organizations in Ohio. This consolidation, coupled with declining defense budgets and personnel, increases the urgency of implementing the AFRL Collaborative Engineering Environment to support collaboration on C4I research. In order for the CEE to support mission requirements, the CEE must be integrated with existing research models and simulations (M&S) and analysis tools. S*R proposes to develop the COLECTR tool set to automate much of the task to integrate legacy applications with the CEE Core Processing System (CPS). Integration with the CEE will be supported by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corporation (Ball); as Ball is developing the CEE infrastructure. COLECTR will incorporate a set of software re-engineering tools in a CEE compliant agent called the Legacy Introspection Agent (LIA). LIA will seamless integrate with the CPS to support integrating legacy applications. In Phase I, S*R will integrate a prototype of COLECTR and integrate it as an external CEE application to demonstrate the system functional capabilities. The LIA will then be designed and implementation of Java tools to support Phase II implementation will continue during the last six months of Phase I.
