Design and Evaluation of Information Broker Architecture for Network-Centric Operational Environment
Park, Jejun; Kang, Dongsu;
The information superiority through effective networking is a core element that accelerates command decision for mission completion. Our military wants to acquire capabilities of effective information sharing with Network-Centric Operational Environment(NCOE) for Network-Centric Warfare (NCW). In this paper, we suggested an information broker for overcoming current limits and maximizing future expandability and possibility of information sharing capacities. The information broker, which is an intermediate layer between users and information providers, provides the functions for mediating and managing information and for ensuring security of the system. We evaluated the consistency of proposed architecture and the implementation of the operational architecture design concept using existing design frameworks.
