A Hybrid Modeling Method for Service-Oriented C4ISR Requirements Analysis

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 107)


With the rapid growth of complexity as well as the continuously innovational concept of network-centric warfare, it is difficult to analyze and design C4ISR systems based on the existing component technology or the object-oriented technology. However, both the workflow method and the AI planning method for service modeling are not very suitable for analysis and design service-oriented C4ISR requirements. This paper imports Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) design paradigm to C4ISR requirements analysis, and proposes a hybrid modeling method based on multi-ontologies. Accompanied with an instance, the method provides a new, flexible, reusable solution for C4ISR requirements evolution and system reconstruction.
