[January 30, 2001] "The [US] Program Executive Office (PEO) Interchange XML Initiative aims to support and enable synergy between several Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps command and control (C2) PEOs with respect to XML use. Our supporting efforts fall into four categories: (1) Policy development and implementation (2) Program interoperability (3) Functional application integration (4) Technical demonstrations, prototypes, and architectures. Current work in progress relates to databases, messaging, functional area applications, program systems, and other information processing with XML. Major participants include Dr. Joe Molitoris, chair and Mitre Army lead; Bruce Binney, Mitre Navy lead; Dan Winkowshi, Mitre USAF lead; Dr. Glenda Hayes, Mitre DISA lead. Parties encouraged to participate include U.S.A. government and contract support who utilize or plan to utilize XML for C2 systems."
