The change of focus in modern warfare from individual platforms to the network has caused a concomitant shift in supporting concepts and technologies. Greater emphasis is placed on interoperability and com-poseability. New technologies such as SOA and semanti-cally aware systems have come into the spotlight. This paper argues that just as the problem space demands interoperability of diverse technologies, so must the solu-tion space . In other words, not only are new approaches needed, but they must also come together as a seamlessly interoperable technological tool set. This can be accom-plished only via a consistent multi-disciplinary approach. In this paper, we present some of the major requirements of today’s Predictive Situation Awareness Systems (PSAW), propose our approach as a coordinated mix between state-of-the-art research efforts, and present the architecture for enabling our approach.
