AbstractAs the DoD shifts toward Network-Centric operations, the vision of sharing common information objects between command centers, aircraft, ships and ground forces over a global network seems closer than ever. One of the fundamental challenges of achieving this vision is bridging the gap between net-centric systems that share information using XML and tactical systems that require more efficient data representations. AgileDelta developed Efficient XMLTM, an extremely compact, high performance binary XML format to satisfy this need. During JEFX ’06 and JRAE ’06, Efficient XML reduced bandwidth utilization and increased transfer speed by over 100 times, surpassing the DoD’s best tactical data formats. JRAE ’06 and JEFX ’06 independently recommended immediate fielding. The World Wide Web Consortium identified Efficient XML as a best-of-breed capability and is creating a global web standard based on it. This Phase II SBIR project will investigate, develop and evaluate Efficient XML integration architectures and migration strategies. It will define advanced architectures and protocols for dynamically negotiating and acquiring schemas for optimizing Efficient XML exchanges and enabling XML routers and guards to efficiently inspect Efficient XML streams. In addition, it will define architectures that enable rapid migration from expensive, proprietary protocols to Efficient XML without disrupting interoperability..
