In 2015 the TRADOC Analysis Center TRAC initiated the Digital Research Library project to develop a secure network accessible document repository for technical documents and similar document artifacts. We used a model-based approach using the Vector Relational Data Modeling VRDM computational paradigm. VRDM has the key attributes of being cloud available, using domain semantics for configured application development, and having a DoD network certified environment for implementing the executable information model applications. We developed a metadata framework for the digital library based on the standard DD 298 form and extended it to satisfy TRAC mission and technical products. The application was designed with user roles, search, uploaddownload, CAC login, version tracking, and an exemplar model behavior DocumentCites. The configured semantically described behavior demonstrates the extensibility of the model application thus providing a means for rapidly implementing new methods for greater knowledge discovery. The resulting executable information model application was populated with over 60 documents for proof of concept demonstration and model refinement.
