Abstract
Smart phones, tablets, and laptops can allow soldiers to connect, share relevant data, receive feedback, display apriori mission information, and much more while remaining small enough to be carried during a mission. However, one of the biggest issues in integrating new technologies and applications is the lack of a consistent and open architecture. Open architectures foster rapid innovation; integration time is significantly reduced, which allows new technology to get to soldiers more quickly. Open architectures also allow for plug-and-play capability. Compatibility issues between equipment, applications and operator control units can limit the warfighter. Robotic Research, LLC, proposes to create the Firestorm Application Repository (FAR) and Firestorm Interpretation Layer (FIL). The overall objective of the proposal is to develop an application repository system and to create a translation layer that parses multiple standard communication protocols, interprets and sends these messages to the Firestorm software. The Firestorm Application Repository (FAR) will allow users to search for and download Firestorm enabled applications to their computer or Android phone. The applications listed in the FAR will all be compliant with the Firestorm Interpretation Layer (FIL), which will serve as a bridge between the applications and the Firestorm software.
