The development of interoperability standards can facilitate communication among information systems by defining a common way to exchange information. These standards consist of normative and informative products that specify the details that enable heterogeneous systems produced by different organizations to be successfully integrated and then to interoperate, as per system requirements. Identifying and managing such requirements is a key element of building successful standards -- those that ultimately are adopted, utilized, and meet stakeholder expectations. Applying systems engineering principles with a well-defined Enterprise Architecture process-driven approach has allowed the Multilateral Interoperability Programme MIP Working Group to produce the MIP Information Model MIM as a proposed successor to the Joint Consultation Command and Control Information Exchange Data Model JC3IEDM. The Coalition Battle Management Language C-BML being developed by the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization SISO has utilized the JC3IEDM as the underlying data model for its Phase 1 product development. The current paper reports on preliminary work using the proposed MIM and associated toolset as the basis for the C-BML Phase 2 product development.
