6 New England Executive Park, Burlington, MA, 01803
AbstractThe primary objective of this SBIR is to implement a proof-of-concept interoperability gateway based on a layered architectural design developed in Phase One. The goal is to demonstrate the viability of a layered translation architecture for developinginter-exchange gateways that must perform data translation from one medium to another and/or among several mediums. For example, with the mandated proliferation of Link-16 over the next 5 years, every SPO must work together to ensure overallinteroperability, not only among Link-16 participants but also among numerous other diverse systems and datalinks which are not Link-16 compatible. This non-interoperability between diverse systems may be resolved by implementation of data forwardingrules, translation architecture(s), or other unique translation applications that act as a
