To overcome large scale system design problems conventional approaches that consist of 1 system functionality definition, 2 partitioning of the system functionality into sub-functional blocks, 3 independent development of each sub-functional block into a sub-system component, and 4 connection of sub-system components to form an entire system, one has to address the foundation of a Configurable Aerospace Command Center CACC system, such that it will provide the capability of allowing sub-systems and components to be pluggable into the environment and form a coherent system, where exchanges of events, data and functions across the boundaries of sub-systems will be seamless and actions on all sub-systems will be globally coordinated and optimally controlled. In this report, we investigate many such issues and look into existing systems, and perform feasibility assessment on existing collaboration systems to see how much intersystem collaboration functions can possibly be developed through an external functional extension, i.e., without the access or modification of the source code of existing collaboration systems.
