Abstract
Tech-X Corporation proposes to develop a discovery framework called WANDS for the OMG DDS publish/subscribe middleware. The WANDS framework fills an important gap in realizing DoD's goal of information dominance by enabling the use of emerging quality of service (QoS)-enabled publish/subscribe (pub/sub) middleware in large-scale, net-centric operations. Specifically, the WANDS framework will enable the use of DDS in a dynamic WAN environment to support net-centric systems with stringent QoS requirements, including real-time, fault-tolerance, and security needs. We will collaborate with other companies and agencies to standardize the discovery framework in DDS through the OMG. Our Phase~I effort will focus on investigating different key aspects of integrating discovery strategies.
