This paper identifies the technical standards required to support future implementation of the Worldwide Military Command and Control System Automated Data Processing Modernization WAM target architecture. It is part of a larger task from the Defense Information Systems Agency, formerly the Defense Communications Agency, to describe the WAM target architecture at a level of technical detail necessary for implementation planning. It surveys existing and planned international, U.S. voluntary, and U.S. Federal Government standards appropriate to the seven generic command and control information system CCIS services data exchange, data management, network, operating systems, programming, security and Open Systems Interconnection OSI systems management, and user interface. The paper provides a framework of standards to promote interoperability, assure flexibility, and growth potential, and allow for technology insertion through the use of commercial off-the-shelf COTS products.
