2 What is CWID? US Led Interoperability Initiative MOD / Industry collaborative eventTechnology demonstration and field trialIdentify and deliver future military capabilities made possible by Networked Enabled Capability (NEC)Identify capability gap solutions and innovative opportunitiesDe-risk Equipment Programme projectsInform future research and development projects and initiativesDe-risk Afghanistan 2011
7 QINETIQ: Core Network Key Features of UK CWID 08 Integrated Network The network had been designed to reflect the information infrastructure in Afghanistan 2011.The initial network architecture reflected some of the known shortfalls with regard to information access and exchange.These shortfalls were addressed during the engineering design toenable the Information Exchange Requirements (IERs) identified by the trails to be realised.To ensure the most accurate representation of the information infrastructure, the use of virtual servers and a common security model have been adopted.Systems demonstrated:Prototype FALCONBOWMANHFLink 16Integration of CND and Engineering Management Tools.QinetiQ’s Deployed Network Management Service (DNMS)Minimal Sign-on and cross-forest authentication whilst still deliveringautonomy.Provision of Critical Services for Coalition including:Domain Naming ServiceFederated Address BookWindows Update ServiceAnti Virus Update Service

15 BAE Systems at CWID 08 – ISTAR Tactical to Strategic Multi Intelligence HubDigital Data Depository (D3) - federated Intelligence Reference LibraryQuick Query (Q2) - web based search interfaceSOCET GXP - image analysis, geospatial analysis and photogrammetry softwarephotogrammetry - The art and science of obtaining measurements from aerial photographs
16 D3 / Q2 / GXP in more detailThis slide builds to show the basic process for getting imagery / video from a collection asset, e.g. UAV, to the image analyst (IA) for them to exploit and produce intelligence
18 Thales: Secure Enterprise Delivery (SeED) demo Builds on data dissemination and value added services ofthe Future Integrated ISTAR Management System (FIIMMS)and JEDDI Middleware demonstrationsIntegrates these capabilities in a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) providing core data services includingair, land and maritime track information,encyclopaedicand airspace information services.Secure Enterprise Delivery provides a suite of integrated services, adhering to open standards, for use by systems within the DII environment, includingJoint Operations Picture (JOP)air vehicle mission planning applications.These services are protected by a multi-level security architecture.
21 Summary CWID is an important UK MOD / Industry collaborative event About one third of exhibits (most Information Systems) based on SOAsUnique opportunity for industry interoperability work“let’s just try this…”Industry trails fund themselvesMoD provide infrastructureDrives NEC interoperability a few steps closer each year
