Distributed Crew Interface
The US Air Force requires the capability to control, upload and download management information in order to coordinate crew interactions, even when the crew is remotely located. Because of limitations in communication infrastructure and shared databases, it is difficult for collaborating engineers, planners, analysts, and military commanders to allocate these assets in a timely manner. This process also requires the use of systems like the MILSATCOM ACMS that does not provide sufficient coordination support for large commercial satellite operators. Cybernet provided a system more aligned with commercial practices such as WWW, CGI, and JAVA usage will offer the DoD further leverage as it upgrades its systems. This design also provides an ISA the capability for the remote administration of collaboration and database upload and download into Air Force installed common support stations.
