A systems engineering approach to M&S standards development: Application to the Coalition Battle Management Language

The development of interoperability standards can facilitate communication among information systems by defining a common way to exchange information. These standards are in fact comprised of normative and informative products that typically specify the details and examples that enable heterogeneous systems produced by different organizations to be integrated successfully and then to interoperate, as per system requirements. Identifying and managing such requirements is a key element to building successful standards – those that ultimately are adopted, utilized and meet stakeholder expectations. The systems engineering approach is grounded in the world of requirements and can be applied to M&S interoperability standards development in order to ensure that these standards are indeed successful. The first part of this paper considers some cases where systems engineering principles have been applied to technical standards. The second part then illustrates how this approach is being applied to the development of the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) Coalition Battle Management Language Phase 2 Products with significant contributions from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Modeling and Simulation Group 085 (MSG-085): Standardization for C2-Simulation Interoperation.
