Spectrum Fable: How AESOP and XML Improve Naval Operations   [open pdf - 75KB]

"If you remember what it was like to be a preschooler, youll recall 'Aesop's Fables', short stories with moral lessons passed down from ancient times. However, mention the word 'AESOP' around the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) these days and a tale of Extensible Markup Language (XML) and the electromagnetic spectrum will emerge. And before the day is through you just might find yourself re-examining the tale of 'The Tortoise and the Hare.' The Afloat Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations Program, or AESOP, is a surface Navy spectrum management software tool for managing radar and communications frequencies of shipboard equipment. It is a critical task. Poor spectrum management leads to undue interference that can cripple systems meant to bolster warfighting capabilities like tracking enemy aircraft or jamming enemy radar."
