AbstractSolipsys Corporation has significant experience integrating legacy military software with modern the middleware approach demonstrated during the All Services Combat Identification Evaluation Team (ASCIET) '97 exercise in Gulfport, Mississippi, which has since been extended to a more global framework. Solipsys engineers have an extensive background in combat system integration, gained over many years of experience with the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) and related systems. We will examine the current and evolving middleware solutions available in industry for their applicability to military systems. Our recent experience includes designing interfaces to an Arsenal Ship C4I environment using legacy and new systems, where CORBA, DCOM and Java were candidates. This gives us a quick start advantage in designing a middleware solution to solve combat system specific problems arising from integrating legacy and new software. Phase 1 will document this approach and begin the planning for Phase 2 when the middleware recommendations will be implemented into AEGIS.
