The new Strategic Technical Plan drafted by the Air Force Electronic Systems Center ESC states that the objective future is one in which systems are made interoperable by adoption of network centric, web-enabling and open architecture technology. To realize this future vision, it is imperative that exploration of emerging technology continue, with the goal of determining the value and applicability of each new advance to critical government missions. To that end, the Strategic and Nuclear Deterrence Command and Control System Program Office within ESC established the Web Way Ahead effort in 2000. This is a multi-year effort to support research and experimentation with new advances in technology to evolve existing mission systems toward interoperability and network centric processing. The focus to date has been on applications of eXtensible Markup Language XML and web-based security. As part of the 2003 Web Way Ahead effort, a study was commissioned to investigate Rule Markup Language RuleML to determine its applicability to interoperability in the military space domain. The purpose of this paper is to document the results of this study.
