Abstract:

The Defense Information Systems Agency DISA has been directed to upgrade the Worldwide Military Command and Control System WWMCCS by providing a Command and Control Information System CCIS which offers a combination of services and products that aid interoperability and that have sufficient flexibility to accommodate the varied missions of WWMCCS users. The architectural premise is of an open, interoperable, and heterogeneous set of systems and components linked together to accomplish command and control functions. DISA asked IDA to develop a generic, standards-based architecture consistent with CCIS needs, an architecture based on accepted standards that foster interoperability, evolvability, and allow for technology growth with commercial off-the-shelf products. This paper describes the military requirements, the generic architecture, and the standards profile appropriate for a CCIS to be built in the 1995-97 time period.
