Abstract:

Achieving data interoperability is a necessary element of realizing the United States Governments vision of interoperability across all the services. This paper describes an Extensible Markup Language XML approach that was invented to capture data structure, content, and semantics in a targeted military domain of space surveillance. The resulting Space Surveillance Ontology could become a standard, shared space surveillance vocabulary as a step toward achieving data interoperability for military space data across domains. The ontology was created using the World Wide Web Consortium W3C emerging standard called XML Schema.
