Abstract: This paper illustrates use of the Universal Core messaging framework to enable request and return of large environmental data files, specifically meteorological and oceanographic (MetOc) data. The utility of the approach is described by experiments conducted during the Trident Warrior 2010 Naval exercise. We next overview development of a web services broker system for MetOc data. The implementation of this broker system incorporates both automated data discovery and retrieval capabilities. An extension of UCore, C2 (Command and Control) Core is described and an evaluation to assess its effectiveness for the MetOc domain is described.

Keywords: meteorological data; oceanographic data; MetOc; web services; ontology; net-centric; Universal Core; UCore; broker systems; data discovery; data retrieval; command and control; large scale tactical data.
