Abstract:

Given the prototypical architectural templates demise, the purpose of this research is to begin a formulation of the Agile Assessment Methodology needed to evaluate the mission capability impact of using composeable web services in complex adaptive architectures. Network Centric Warfare NCW Assessment Processes must validate that a rush towards a transformation by date X does not sacrifice warfighter capability by introducing de-stabilizing architecture components. What assessment methodology and criteria will be used to evaluate or even define the NCW architectural boundaries for platform system reductions What assessment methodology will be used to evaluate mission execution success probabilities given the migration away from traditional platform centric mission capabilities The results of this research indicate that platforms should be wary of removing systems in favor of GIG services which may jeopardize crew or platform survivability it also recommends that composeable assessment and simulation capabilities required to manage the assessment of mixed architecture capability ensembles be developed.
