The military wants many information systems to share one language

The U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force have signed a memorandum for the establishment of common standards across future weapon information systems. The purpose of such common standards is to improve battlefield coordination through streamlined information flow. “Victory in future conflict will in part be determined by our ability to rapidly share information across domain and platforms,” said the U.S. Air Force Secretary. “Sharing information from machine to machine requires common standards.” Given the variety and complexity in information systems, integrating them into a transferable communication system involves major challenges. Fortunately, however, the services have worked towards common information systems integration, and this new emphasis will be a renewed emphasis on a longer standing approach.
