Abstract"What forms the foundation of the Joint Battlespace Infosphere (JBI) system is a Publish and Subscribe (P&S) architecture, which is composed of protocols, processes, and common core functions permitting participating application and organizations to shareand exchange mission-critical information in a timely manner. The Air force is examining various P&S standards that have the potential of forming the basis for a comprehensive JBI platform. Leveraging Architecture Technology Corporation's existingtechnology in reconfigurable test tools, this SBIR research proposes to develop architecture for an Integrated Publish & Subscribe Architecture Test Harness (InPATH) that will provide JBI platform evaluators a powerful tool to test and assess thecapability and performance of various Publish & Subscribe architectures. The proposed easy-to-use and cost-efficient test tool will enable distributed simulation of multiple P&S systems on multiple platforms. This integrated solution will enable evaluationof P&S systems both under development and in operation The military and commercial application for this research is a software evaluation tool aimed at enabling DoD and commercial P&S system personnel for evaluation and comparison of various P&Sarchitectures. Potential customers of the commercial product from this research include the military and commercial P&S system developers as well as evaluators. The anticipated benefits include cost saving in
