  • C-BML Study GroupC-BML Study Group built on the foundation of previous SISO study groupsC4I Study GroupC4ISR/TRM Study Group

    C-BML Leverages existing bodies of workEagle BMLCCSIL (Command and Control Simulation Interchange Language)C2IEDM (Command and Control Information Exchange Data Model)US Army SIMCI BMLFrench Armed Services APLETUS/GE SINCE (Simulation and C2IS Connectivity Experiment)

    Interim Mtg at GMU

  • C-BML What is it?C-BML is an unambiguous language:

    Convey orders and commands to live, simulated, and robotic forces

    Convey situational awareness

    Interim Mtg at GMU

  • C-BML PurposeDesigned to facilitate C2 to Simulation Interoperability

    Uses de facto international standard (C2IEDM) for C2Recommended for C2 to M&S interoperability by NATO MSG (October, 2003)Recommended for C2 to M&S interoperability by the US Army M&S Executive Council (July, 2005)

    Interim Mtg at GMU

  • C-BML How did we get here?C-BML SG approved by SISO in September, 2004

    Participants represent a wide body of interest, including:Representatives from 12 different nationsOver 80 participants at SG meetingsIndustry, Academia, Government

    3 SG meetings and workshops (outside of SIW meetings) have been conducted (plus numerous telecons), with robust activity

    Active coordination with MSDL SG has brought about harmonization of plans for PDG

    Interim Mtg at GMU

  • C-BML Terms of ReferenceThe study group shall conduct a survey comprising as many international contributions applicable to the C-BML effort as possible

    The study group shall develop a plan of how these various efforts identified in task one can contribute to a common C-BML standard/standard framework

    The study group shall formulate a set of recommendations for a C-BML Product Development Group

    Interim Mtg at GMU

  • C-BML Findings and RecommendationsSISO accept the Product Nomination

    SISO establish a C-BML PDG

    A phased approach should be taken for development of the standard

    The C-BML PDG should be separate from a proposed MSDL PDGC-BML focuses on C2/M&S data interchangeMSDL focuses on simulation initialization

    C-BML and MSDL PDGs will collaborate on areas of common interest

    To maintain engagement with C2 community to ensure joint ownership and development of the standard

    Interim Mtg at GMU

  • C-BML Product Development and PlanGoal: Develop, in phased versions, a C-BML standard that will facilitate interoperability between C2 and M&S

    Each version will include:Data ModelContent SchemaExchange MechanismImplementation Guidelines

    The phased versions will include each of these aspects in increasing levels of detail and refinement

    Interim Mtg at GMU

  • C-BML Phased DevelopmentIntroduction of C-BML, initial versions of Data Model, Content Schema, Exchange Mechanism, and Implementation Guidelines (2007)

    Refinement of C-BML aspects through introduction of Grammars and Grammar based techniques (2008)

    Enabling interoperability through C-BML by introducing Ontology-based methods and related technology recommendations (2010)

    Interim Mtg at GMU

  • C-BML and MSDL Capabilities C-BML Capabilities Unambiguous language for orders, reports, and situational awareness. Used to communicate between humans, robotics, and simulations within and between echelons. Leverages common tasking language grammar developed by MSDL & BML participants. Supports all phases of military operations: planning, execution, and review. Supports multiple doctrines. Provides a standard data representation using the C2IEDM. Provides an unambiguous vocabulary across the international C4I domain. Includes a reference implementation and recommended practices for message distribution.Common Capabilities

    Support for simulation pre-initialization phase (operational planning phase).

    Common tasking language grammar shared between MSDL & BML allows for consistent data interchange for simulation initialization.

    Common vocabulary across the international C4I domain.

    Supports multiple doctrines.

    MSDL Capabilities Unambiguous language to represent military scenario data and file transmittal format for simulation initialization. Provides military scenario information that is simulation independent in format and content. Leverages common tasking language grammar developed by MSDL & BML participants. Supports activities leading up to the simulation initialization phase. Supports multiple doctrines. Provides a standard interchange representation using XML. Leverages C-BML vocabulary across the international C4I domain. Includes a reference implementation.
