What is JRAE 05?
JRAE 05 Quick
JRAE is intended to facilitate Joint DoD
Force Transformation by providing the Services a venue for testing
and experimenting with their Next Generation Architectures and
Service Roadmaps. JRAE's focus is on experimenting with near
term, end-to-end material solutions that the Services' plan to
field in the next one to four years and ensuring the end-to-end
architectures are interoperable. JRAE provides a forum for
the services to work jointly and collaboratively to actively
engage in transformational experiments and/or architecture
prototyping. JRAE builds upon the work of the JFCOM
sponsored Cross Service Architecture Integration Working Group and
the Service Architecture products through engineering experiments
coupled with rigorous assessments (both Joint and Service).
The outcome is a set of Engineering Decisions. JRAE supports
the Joint Battle Management Command and Control (JBMC2) process by
providing a vehicle for examination of key interoperability
FY05 goals for JRAE will focus on leveraging
existing work in the Target List Management area that explores the
technical interoperability problems associated with a Service
Oriented Architecture approach and Publish/Subscribe techniques.
In particular, FY05 efforts will center on the following:
Validate and assess recommended migration architecture of the
dynamic target list management capability in a Service Oriented
Assess the operational efficiencies to be gained from an
incremental approach (interim architecture) using existing systems
in a Service Oriented Approach.
Joint Distributed Services
Examined inter-service use of distributed services to reduce the
timeline to detect, decide, plan and act over a joint IP based
04-2 Joint Tactical Situational Awareness
Focused on improving the Joint Tactical
Shared Situational Awareness of Blue Force Tracking and the Joint
Call For Fires process.
04-4 GIG Transformation Experiment
Examined Inter-Service data exchange issues
while transitioning to an initial Joint GIG Architecture.
04-5 Time Sensitive Targeting Interservice Interoperability
Fostered the development of the Distributed
Common Ground System (DCGS), established Joint TST/PE System
Description and evolved the CONOPS for a Distributed Virtual TST/PE
