Transforming Legacy Defense Systems with Open Source Middleware
In his presentation, Adam will explore how service-oriented architecture (SOA) principles around granular, modular, composable and interoperable services—applied either on the platform or the cloud—can help the acquisitions community field affordable command and control (C2) systems that push “power to the edge” and enable the operational community to shorten decision cycle times and enable autonomously self-synchronizing operations.
Adam will begin by examining current environmental challenges in the C2 acquisitions space. He will then explore the requirement for transformation and the baseline from which the transformation departs. These include the nature of current C2 technologies, erroneous technical expectations and assumptions, the community’s understanding of SOA and deprecated security paradigms. Additionally, Adam will discuss the operational drivers militating toward a technological and doctrinal transformation and how they have been impacted by fiscal realities. Finally, Adam will introduce the history of US government support for the use of open source software, identify key C2 capabilities that can be enabled through the use of open source software, and explain how open source is a key enabler for both legacy system transformation and improved cyber security.
