Abstract:

The paper presents a real-time Community of Interest COI framework for Command and Control C2 applications. The overall goal is to support superior decision making, COIs flexible synchronization and collaboration, and real-time communication. The extended service-oriented architecture SOA based framework consists of three layers including mission layer, COI service layer and support layer. Mission service layer consists of a set of missiontactical services. COI service layer provides COI coordinator service, policy specificationevaluation services, situation awareness and dynamic reconfiguration services. Overall scenarios of COIs services are described to illustrate the relationships among the services. The support service layer consists of discovery services, messaging services, security service, scenario specification services, quality-of-assurance service, data storageretrieval services, and maintenance services. This paper focuses on COI service layer. A prototype is developed to demonstrate the main proposed techniques, approaches and the process using an example COI of bookstores and publishers. It has three layers including data collectionfilter layer, analysis layer and presentation layer.
