A collaborative enterprise environment is an application of advanced distributed simulation and information technology in an integrated environment to support technology development, system design, performance, cost, and producibility trade-off analyses throughout the entire product and system engineering life cycle. The Sensors and Information Directorates, Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) have initiated a major effort to implement a Collaborative Environment (CE) to provide the framework and development methodology required for affordable and timely technology for the 21st Century warfighter. This paper discusses AFRL's efforts to support the new Air Force vision and to maximize its internal business processes through enterprise-wide cooperation. The paper discusses the need for a CE as a result of Acquisition Reform and Simulation-based Acquisition; describes CE and how the framework supports enterprise-wide collaboration of multidisciplinary expertise; and describes a CE technical architecture and the new technologies that distinguish it from conventional distributed processing systems
