22 July 2003 At-sea demonstration of RF sensor tasking using XML over a worldwide network

As part of an At-Sea Demonstration for Space and Naval Warfare Command (SPAWAR, PMW-189), a prototype RF sensor for signal acquisition and direction finding queried and received tasking via a secure worldwide Automated Data Network System (ADNS). Using extended mark-up language (XML) constructs, both mission and signal tasking were available for push and pull Battlespace management. XML tasking was received by the USS Cape St George (CG-71) during an exercise along the Gulf Coast of the US from a test facility at SPAWAR, San Diego, CA. Although only one ship was used in the demonstration, the intent of the software initiative was to show that a network of different RF sensors on different platforms with different capabilitis could be tasked by a common web agent. A sensor software agent interpreted the XML task to match the sensor's capability. Future improvements will focus on enlarging the domain of mission tasking and incorporate report management.
