Abstract:

Cursor-on-Target CoT is a strategy for enabling DoD systems to communicate much needed time sensitive position or What, When, Where WWW information. CoT leverages the ubiquitous XML technology and defines a common, terse yet extensible message format for communicating WWW information. A data strategy akin to object oriented decomposition is used to define and manage extensions to the base WWW data. Using this approach CoT can easily and effectively represent BFT, TST, mayday messages, CSAR reports, spot reports, ISR asset tasking, battlefield reservations, and many other tactical battlefield information exchange needs.
