Abstract:

In August 2006, Program Executive Officer of Integrated Warfare Systems PEO-IWS, established the Software Hardware Asset Reuse Enterprise SHARE repository to enable the reuse of combat system software and related assets. In July 2007, the Naval Postgraduate School NPS was tasked to develop a component specification and ontology for the SHARE repository. A description of SHARE and the requirements for a component specification and ontology supporting this repository are available in Johnson 2007. A vision of the component specification and ontology for the repository framework, a brief survey of initiatives and technologies relevant to desired repository capabilities, a development approach, and initial design are described in Johnson Blais 2008. The current report provides the initial component specification and ontology for the repository framework, as well as initial information models supporting future implementation of stronger semantic representations of assets and artifacts in the repository. The document provides recommendations for improvements to descriptions of information stored in the repository to enable more effective search, discovery, and use of information. The initial component specification and ontology will help meet near-term repository objectives and will set the foundation for achieving long-term resource discovery objectives in the Global Information Grid context.
