The United States Air Force has turned to Northrop Grumman to conduct technological experiments on how various service-oriented architecture (SOA) implementations spread across command and control domains might be integrated, according to a Northrop Grumman press release on January 31.
“This research will enable coordination and synchronization of information and application services to meet the demands of warfighting missions,” says Mike Twyman, vice president of integrated command, control, communications, and intelligence systems for Northrop Grumman’s Information Systems sector. “By partnering with Air Force Research Laboratory, Rome Research Site, we will jointly recommend and demonstrate novel strategies to manage and orchestrate data flow and content delivery across the realms of air and space command and control.”
Northrop Grumman will also analyze emerging information technology as applied to air and space warfighting domains. The goal of the engage with the USAF is to explore standardization in order to provide better enterprise-wide accessability.
