Northrop Grumman Corp. announced that it was awarded a contract by the US Air Force to show how service orienting its command-and control systems can help those systems interoperate as one, big virtual system.

Northrop Grumman says it will be working with the Air Force's Rome, NY-based research facility will conduct technology experiments to show methods that enable distributed SOA-based IT infrastructures to operate as a larger, virtually integrated command and control system:

"The company will explore community of interest-based data models, information protocols, and message exchange standards so that specified services can be best accessed and managed across the enterprise. Northrop Grumman will also examine evolving information technologies and common integrated C2 operational threads within and across the air and space warfighting domains."

Northrop Grumman also sees potential for SOA to integrate systems and processes from across the intelligence community, as explained in this document written in 2007.
