The Air Force Research Laboratory has asked industry to provide information on existing software platforms, applications, packages and microservices in support of the commandONE line of effort of the Advanced Battle Management Systems program.
A request for information posted Thursday says commandONE seeks to provide the application layer architecture of ABMS to meet command and control mission requirements for battle management across air, cyber space and other domains.
AFRL wants the commandONE program to achieve survivability through a cloud-based approach, agility for applications, configurability within apps to meet the evolving needs of warfighters and interoperability by complying with community data exchange standards.
The commandONE line of effort’s technical challenge has been classified into five functional areas: all-domain battle management functions, doctrine, integration, modeling and simulation and verification and validation.
Interested stakeholders should indicate whether their platforms have met the listed non-functional requirements and best practices in the RFI. NFRs include structured logging format for logging aggregation, single sign-on and security compliance while best practices include the 12 factor app, continuous integration and continuous delivery path to production and application programming information documentation.
Responses to the RFI are due Sept. 30.
