The Joint Battle Management Language (JBML) is being developed as an unambiguous language for tasking and reporting. This paper summarizes significant US national contributions to the current Coalition Battle Management Language (C-BML) Product Development Group activities. It focuses on application of the well-known principles of BML in the joint warfighting context that will support a Joint Event in 2007. The JBML design is characterized by several layers that enable configurable solutions, not only from the information system perspective, but also from a domain-specific information exchange view. The main ideas are to capture standardized data elements (atomic services), compose the elements into meaningful objects representing data in context of a general application (composite services) and use the resulting information elements to form domain-specific information elements (domain services). The services are implemented as Web services supporting C-BML Phase 1. The domain configuration is based on a general Grammar schema derived from initial work in formal languages to support C-BML Phase 2. Finally, an initial version of the domain-specific knowledge is formalized as an initial step toward the development of ontologies in C-BML Phase 3. All information exchange specifications are tightly connected with the Joint Command, Control and Consultation Information Exchange Data Model (JC3IEDM), although the higher levels of JBML introduce abstractions that encapsulate the complexity of the underlying data model intended to make the consistent application of JBML easier for the user. The paper focuses on the JBML layered approach and how these elements contribute to the C-BML standardization activity.
