Abstract:

This technical report describes the results and conclusions of the NATO Modelling and Simulation Group MSG-048 Coalition Battle Management Language C-BML. C-BML is a standard for an unambiguous language that can communicate military information among command and control systems, simulation systems and autonomous systems and support a great number of military enterprise activities. The work described in this report deals primarily with the assessment of preliminary versions of the C-BML standard and initial prototype implementations of C-BML communications software to support military activities such as training and mission planning. This report provides a set of requirements for C-BML that have been developed during the execution of the MSG-048 Experimentation Programme. The experiments comprising the experimentation programme provided many lessons learned that form a major part of this document. Finally, this report provides recommendations concerning the future use of C-BML, including the coordination with other standardization bodies.
