This report presents observations from an ongoing research project that is tasked with assessing and improving Department of Defense (DoD) and Navy policy for command, control, communications, and intelligence and for weapon programs. This report examines a new information exchange standard, Universal Core (UCore), its relationship to DoD data strategy and policy, its implementation options, and related technical issues that should be resolved prior to the widespread adoption of this powerful new interoperability mechanism. Universal Core (UCore) 2.0 is a DoD and intelligence community information exchange framework that may be able to significantly improve interoperability between Department of Defense (DoD) information systems. UCore can support a broad range of data models with its data wrapping and extensibility capabilities. Before the Navy and DoD accelerate adoption of UCore, however, several issues must be addressed, including bandwidth, implementation option guidance, and implementation costs. The authors identify unanswered questions in each of these areas. To date, UCore pilot projects and related testing have not produced sufficient data on UCore bandwidth demands and cost implications, two factors that are very important to program managers. Furthermore, current DoD policy does not provide clear policy direction on UCore. To realize UCore's benefits, the Navy and DoD should continue to develop the UCore data exchange framework; encourage program experimentation with UCore; and capture detailed performance and cost data from future UCore pilot efforts to ensure that bandwidth, implementation, and cost issues are addressed
The research described in this report was prepared for the United States Navy. The research was conducted within the RAND National Defense Research Institute, a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, the Unified Combatant Commands, the Navy, the Marine Corps, the defense agencies, and the defense Intelligence Community under Contract W74V8H-06-C-0002
