Title Implementing a Standards Development Framework for the Coalition Battle Management Language.
Publication Date Jun 2013
Media Count 68p
Personal Author K. Gupton K. Heffner
Abstract The Coalition Battle Management Language (C-BML) is an open standard being developed for the exchange of digitized military information among command and control, simulation and autonomous systems by the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) and is no exception in this regard. As the first phase of the C-BML standard nears release, the Phase 2 Drafting Group (DG) has proposed a framework to identify and track the concerns and requirements to be addressed in the next major C-BML standard release. The C-BML Standard Development Framework (SDF) proposed in 2012 organizes various parts of C-BML and establishes a separation-of-concern in terms of function and scope. This paper reports on the preliminary results of implementing the C-BML SDF. In particular, the reference architecture that is the basis for the framework is described as well as experience and insight gained in the handling of stakeholder requirements. Also discussed are lessons learned and challenges faced in the effective use of applied ontology as an integral part of the standard development.
