This work discusses topics related to data sharing and understanding in a network-enabled environment. A critical component of a successful implementation of network-enabled operations (NEOps) will be the client’s ability to judge the importance of the received data as well as understand the content of the received data. In the NEOps environment, many clients will enter the network unaware of the available data assets. A discovery process is required for the client to first identify the available resources. Once identified, the client will require information on the structure used to deliver the data to the client. Then, the client will need information on the details of the data items present within the structure. This work proposes an architecture suitable for the discovery and understanding process. The architecture is based on a vocabulary, or dictionary of terms, and a definition of data structures. An example implementation is provided using extensible markup language. The Networked Underwater Warfare Technology Demonstration Project underway at DRDC Atlantic provides an implementation focus for the data sharing concepts presented in this work.
