Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) becomes nowadays the core computing paradigm that utilizes services as fundamental elements for executing information warfare. In the Department of Defense (DoD), the main goal of SOC is that all available information resources crowd into a network, so called `Global Information Grid (GIG)' for Net Centric Warfare (NCW), with little effort for network centric services. For achieving the goal, Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA)'s Net-Centric Enterprise Services(NCES) project has a development budget of $37.2 million and an operating budget of $89.9 million for fiscal year 2009. With increasing emphasis on SOC, the automatic service binding method becomes a hot issue in SOC. This paper proposes a new approach of using the DoD Enterprise Architecture Reference Models(DoD EA RM) as a mid-level ontology to support an automatic NCW service binding for a business-level service composition.
