Abstract : To solve today's problem of the lacking interoperability between disparate command and control (C2) systems, the Ballistic Missile Defense Office is developing a proof-of-concept model. The proof-of-concept model, Common Data Sharing System Infrastructure, allows external command and control systems to store, transfer, and communicate using a common object-oriented database. The Generation One architecture demonstrates that information could be shared in a client-server architecture using a message-based, flat-file means of transferring data. Generation Two uses an object-oriented database to increase the infrastructure's robustness and flexibility to give information on demand. This thesis evaluates the Common Data Sharing System Infrastructure for its potential use in future command and control systems.
