Not Available Our objective is to develop and demonstrate a model for the Simulation Based Acquisition (SBA) process. The concept is that the SBA framework is an associative network of interdependent objects implementing the underlying information model. We propose an integrated architecture for this purpose using the Java/CORBA Object Web in phase I, and integrate it with an initial implementation of the HLA/RTI in phase II. The Object Web provides the distributed infrastructure and associated services needed to facilitate the evolution of the SBA process as the product evolves from concept to its disposition. The output of this SBIR project will be a demonstration software framework that will provide initial software component implementations and interfaces required to create an application suite that will facilitate phases of the acquisition process throughout the total product life cycle. In Phase I, we will develop object models, the Object Web, and demonstrate a limited set of these capabilities using an initial implementation of a set of simulation object models. In phase II, we will develop and integrate a more complete set of models in a distributed environment. In Phase III, we will transfer technology to support DoD applications and to develop commerical products.
