Database Conversion Software
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
AcuSoft proposes to research and develop a database conversion tool based on the Synthetic Environment Data Representation and Interchange Specification (SEDRIS) to maximize the reusability and interchangeability of existing and future USSOCOM database. In the proposed PHASE I effort, we will investigate SEDRIS technology and develop a functioning prototype tools to demonstrate the ability to import and export databases between at least two formats that 1) support SEDRIS, and 2) are commonly used by USSOCOM mission rehearsal devices. The SEDRIS standard, the Interchange Transmittal Mechanism (ITM), makes it feasible to implement a many-to-ITM, and ITM-to-many database conversion tool. The SEDRIS program has addressed most fundamental database conversion issues through its data interchange experiments. This AcuSoft proposed effort emphasizes the 1) Validation, 2) Automation, and 3) Expandability aspects of the database conversion process. Validation, to ensure fidelity, is the most critical issue in the process. Automation will minimize to meet the USSOCOM's rapid-turnaround mission rehearsal requirements. Expandability allows the tool to accommodate various database construction techniques and new formats. A prototype conversion tool will be demonstrated at the end of Phase I. This proposed effort will re-use software from AcuSoft's on-going SEDRIS-related development programs.
