Abstract : A methodology along with a prototype implementation for the automated translation of Bit-Oriented Messages (BOMs) into Data Kernel Representation (DKR) is presented. DKRs, being extensions of Information Distribution Technology (Im)fact types, are collections of information that define battlefield events or actions in a generic, computer oriented fashion. Since the translation of BOMs into DKRs is designed to be bi-directional, a collection of DKRs, could serve as a meta-language for the distribution of tactical information across battlefield functional areas. The prototype implementation, written in the C programming language, is described and example template files for representative Combat Vehicle Command and Control (CVC2) messages and TACFIRE messages are shown.
