Distributed computer systems support several key attributes that are essential for the development and execution of command and control C2 applications. Since C2 applications need to become more survivable, more dispersed, and better able to quickly adapt to new threats, we are seeking to provide an architecture for a survivable Distributed Computing Environment SDCE. In essence, the SDCE will be a base upon which survivable distributed applications can be built. This base must be flexible enough to incorporate advances in technology. It must also be tailorable to the needs of specific C2 applications, and well structured for ease of maintenance. Hence, this base must be capable of evolving with the needs of C2 systems and their supporting technologies. The approach that was used in this effort was to utilize existing technologies such as the Mach micro kernel, along with the CRONUS andor ISIS distributed Computing Environments to provide many of the SDCE requirements.
