National Command & Control Programs

Universal Operations Picture based Situational Awareness

Braxton designs, develops, and sustains Command Center Systems that include device tracking, common operating displays, security architectures, simulation, and cross domain solutions. Since 1994, Braxton has successfully completed many cutting-edge special programs for national programs. On current programs, Braxton delivers service-oriented architecture (SOA), web, database, and back-end processing design and development including Google Earth applications and open source software sustainment.

Braxton’s performance on these national programs demonstrates the ability to successfully and rapidly develop, prototype, and integrate a broad set of open architecture systems in cross-domain environments providing advanced situational awareness within a complex command and control environment. The fielded systems support secure sharing of information, with user access controls based on user roles, user access credentials, and full object labeling. The system also showcases the integration of Braxton products with the products of other vendors. The core architecture for these programs is in operational use and it has been deployed on multiple national projects, with worldwide data distribution and accessibility for tens of thousands of heterogeneous user devices with certified and accredited secure interfaces.

The fielded systems provide enterprise services that ingest information from many sources, at multiple classification levels, and with varied levels of access authorization. This information may be entered into the system by various methods, including live feeds, complex sensor and device networks, manual feeds, and web-based interfaces. The enterprise services normalize, categorize, archive, and summarize the data to provide strategic and tactical situational awareness based on the user’s clearance and authorized role.

A universal operational picture of the system is supported through the integration of standard user interface services. The services allow the user to access the information through browser-based thin clients, Google Earth clients, and other standards-based and custom client interfaces. Each program user interface is determined by the user-defined operational picture requirements.
