The objective of the DARPA battlefield awareness data dissemination (BADD) program is to deliver battlefield awareness information to the warfighter -- anywhere, anytime. BADD is an advanced concept technology demonstration (ACTD) to support proof of concept technology demonstrations and experiments with a goal of introducing new technology to support the operational needs and acceptance of the warfighter. BADD's information management technology provides a 'smart' push of information to the users by providing information subscription services implemented via user- generated profiles. The system also provides services for warfighter pull or 'reach-back' of information via ad hoc query support. The high bandwidth delivery of informtion via the Global Broadcast System (GBS) satellites enables users to receive battlefield awareness information virtually anywhere. Very similar goals have been established for data warehousing technology -- that is, deliver the right information, to the right user, at the right time so that effective decisions can be made. In this paper, we examine the BADD Phase II architecture and underlying information management technoloyg in the context of data warehousing technology and a data warehouse reference architecture. In particular, we foucs on the BADD segment that PSR is building, the Interface to Information Sources (I2S).
