The core support module (CSM) is the collection of hardware and software components on which the mobile and fixed command and control elements of the Global Protection Against Limited Strikes (GPALS) strategic defense segment will be based. The CSM provides interconnectivity, device control and monitoring, and circuit fault isolation for a command center. It is both packaging technique attending to TEMPEST and EMP (electromagnetic pulse) concerns as well as an open command center architecture based on emerging government and industry standards. The document driving these standards is the Fixed and Mobile Standard (FMS) sponsored by the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO). It calls for use of the POSIX operating system interface, Ada programming language, X Windows user interface, SQL database interface, TCP/IP networking, Ethernet protocols, VME hardware, and standard packaging methods. The CSM provides an FMS-compliant basis for the SDIO Command and Control and Element Program
