Research Institution
We are at the genesis of a set of new, innovative, DoD development efforts such as Sea Athena, the Extended Littoral Battlefield (ELB) ACTD, the US Army Aerostat Development Program, the Battlefield Awareness and Data Dissemination (BADD) ACTD and the DD-21 program, each with its own set of overlapping connectivity requirements. The opportunity and demand exists for development of a set of core, enabling components that would form the basis of a Multi-Level Network capability. Specifically required is the introduction of an extensible data synthesis processor coupled with adaptive, intelligent data distribution and routing management. For Phase I, we will define the core set of components required to provide a CEC-like data fusion capability in conjunction with a MLN definition. As a result of this effort, we will develop an open sensor/BMC3 architecture and concept of operations that would be scaleable as additional assets deployed to the developing theater. Using these products we will perform an analysis of this architecture, to evaluate the performance improvements to be realized by the MLN.
