Research Institution
Current and future ASW systems need a strategy to effectively share data among network users. Net-centric systems require exact data formats and vocabularies to create accurate knowledge without human intervention. Significant efforts have been expended developing the Anti-Submarine Warfare Community of Interest Data Model (ACDM). The Navy"s Enterprise Architecture and Data Strategy seek to reduce acquisitions cost and system development lead and integration times by establishing and employing open system solutions. ACDM enables enterprise interoperability by providing an effective means to share data among network users by establishing exact data formats and vocabularies to create accurate knowledge without human intervention. Currently, many ASW systems cannot share similar data. The ACDM is built upon a common core of entity'building blocks'. These common entities support the construction of system-specific data profiles. The proposed initiative establishes Community of Interest (COI) profiles of relevant Undersea Warfare (USW) surveillance data sources for the Integrated Undersea Surveillance System (IUSS) and the AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 System; and prototypes a translation service capable of converting relevant Undersea Warfare (USW) surveillance data to the ACDM.
