The warfighting architecture requirements (WAR) tool extends the Department of Defense Architectural Framework (DODAF) to fill warfighting voids. It builds warfighting scenarios and documents joint capabilities integration and development system (JCIDS) elements. WAR uses DoD task lists to build scenarios attributed by doctrine, organization, training, material, leadership, personnel and facilities (DOTMLPF). These data feed a growing ontology and are managed through an object oriented multiple inheritance structure. The WAR tool reach-back capability draws from existing distributed data sources. The task oriented WAR scenarios can be further defined in terms of timing, cost, function and constraints. Scenario data synchronize the DODAF required operational, system, and technical views. These data may be easily translated to modeling and simulation (M&S) and lend themselves to thin thread analysis across multiple scenarios. The highly scaleable, thin-client, Web-based WAR tool is compliant with emerging DOD net centric enterprise services (NCES) as it contains semantic-web service elements.
