"This document provides an initial high-level strategy for carrying out the responsibilities of the national Maritime Domain Awareness Architecture Management Hub to deliver a standards-based service oriented architecture that will align MDA capabilities. It outlines key goals of the MDA Architecture Management Hub and how the hub will build on previous, current, and emerging initiatives across the Federal Government. A discussion of necessary governance in the context of the MDA Architecture Management Hub follows. Subsequently, high-level strategies for the overall MDA enterprise architecture, as well as strategies for key tenets of net-centric information sharing (data standards and information assurance) are included. Finally, this document will address the resource implications for development and implementation of the architecture. The goal of the Architecture Management Hub is to provide a blueprint to develop a net-centric, information sharing environment, in which data from disparate sources and security domains will be discoverable, accessible, understandable, fused, and usable, with appropriate information assurance, to enable user defined and common operational pictures. This blueprint will guide departments and agencies in their development of capabilities to enable MDA."
