Paper Abstract

The Boeing Company in conjunction with the Information Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has developed an agent-based technology for connecting tactical edge platforms with the emerging Global Information Grid. The technology was demonstrated as part of a live-flight test using The Boeing Company's F-15E Advanced Technology Demonstrator aircraft. The core technology developed and demonstrated as part of the live-flight test is called the Platform Adaptor Agent (PA). The Platform Adaptor Agent provides a mechanism for a tactical platform like the F-15E to receive GIG information. GIG information provides improved tactical awareness and information that enables the war-fighter to increase mission effectiveness. The Platform Adaptor Agent also enables information produced by the tactical edge to be published to the GIG. These published data provide improved real-time situational awareness in command elements such as the Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC).
