Abstract:

Data sharing is the information technology watchword of our time. Revolutions in information exchange and interoperability are underway in government and industry through policies on the strategic end to data standards on the implementation end. The revolution is transforming acquisition systems and processes through specification of open architectures, which enables construction of new complex systems from crafted components. In August 2006, Program Executive Officer, Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS), established the Software, Hardware Asset Reuse Enterprise (SHARE) repository to enable the reuse of combat system software and related assets. The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is tasked to develop a component specification and ontology for the SHARE repository framework. This paper summarizes the work completed to date in support of the PEO IWS 7-sponsored NPS research project
