Semantic interoperability among command and control information systems is critical to information sharing and proper automated processing. To improve multinational combined and joint mission capabilities, the Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP) has defined the Joint Command, Control, and Consultation Information Exchange Data Model (JC3IEDM),(More)
In the Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP), 25 nations and NATO develop consensus-based, system-independent specifications to achieve semantic interoperability among distributed and heterogeneous command and control information systems (C2ISs). Implementing a distributed system is a complex and error-prone task. Therefore, extensive and efficient(More)
Semantic interoperability of command and control information systems (C2ISs) is critical to combined and joint missions. Thus, in the Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP), 25 nations and NATO define a common interface for distributed, heterogeneous C2ISs. A core feature of the MIP Solution is the Joint Command, Control, and Consultation Information(More)
The Joint Consultation, Command, and Control Information Exchange Data Model (JC3IEDM ) of the Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP) is one of the most acknowledged and influential data models in the military area. The JC3IEDM is specified as an Entity-Relationship model that is tailored to the specific needs of the database replication approach of(More)
The Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP), comprising 26 nations and NATO, has developed the MIP Information Model (MIM) to support semantic interoperability across C2 systems. The MIM is a platform-independent model in UML that focuses on describing semantic concepts rather than mandating a specific technical implementation. In this paper, we give(More)
Architecture frameworks have become a popular means to cope with the complexity of today’s enterprises. They support the specification of architectures by providing a method for designing and describing them. An architecture framework typically defines a common terminology, a set of views focusing on particular aspects of the architecture, a set of(More)
