Establishing semantic interoperability, under denied, disconnected, intermittant, and limited telecommunications conditions
MetadataShow full item record
The different approaches and technologies used for system integration and interoperability are explored in this thesis. Of particular interest is the use of the Data Distribution Service (DDS) open standard to integrate the component of any given command and control system working in a denied network environment. The method used for this research includes a review of past literature on the different specification to implement semantic interoperability for better and more efficient integration, as well as an exploration of the different functionalities and capabilities of DDS. We present a middleware design based on the DDS specifications as developed by the Object Management Group. The design was influenced by the different limitations and requirements of the networking environment. Meanwhile, the proposed architecture also offers ways to implement semantic interoperability solutions in the system. Finally, the thesis describes a deployment scenario with a small network in order to accurately define the system controls that could impact the overall functionality of the DDS design, primarily through the Quality of Service (QoS) provisions.
