Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 23, 2006
The Carbon Project is pleased to announce that it has been selected by the Navy to design a comprehensive system to manage, model and map the connections between cyber and physical infrastructures.
This Phase 1 Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program effort was launched in August 2006. The new system is based on CarbonTools PRO, a new software development toolkit that enhances the Microsoft .NET framework for advanced location content handling and CarbonCloud, the world’s first peer-to-peer (P2P) framework for sharing location content.
The system will be consistent with emerging federal geospatial modeling efforts and use advanced standards such as the Geography Markup Language (GML) for cross platform interoperability. The developed framework also leverages the next-generation Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) for peer-to-peer communication and net-centric operations.
“This new system will help address the challenges facing our critical infrastructures, including multiple threats from natural disasters, physical attack, cyber attack and others. It will provide next-generation capabilities to map connections between cyber and physical infrastructures and exchange real-time information between multiple system nodes. These capabilities are vital to achieving cyber-situational awareness and understanding interdependencies between critical infrastructures,” said Jeff Harrison, the Principal Investigator for the project.

About the SBIR Program
The Department of Defense (DoD) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs fund a billion dollars each year in early-stage R&D projects at small technology companies – projects that serve a DoD need and have commercial applications. SBIR and STTR funds are awarded competitively and small companies retain the intellectual property rights to technologies they develop under these programs.
