In the SISO product development group (PDG) on Coalition Battle Management Language (C-BML) a language is being defined that has the aim of enabling unambiguous interoperability between C2 systems on one hand and C2 systems, simulations or robotic forces on the other. In order to verify the C2 to simulation part of this claim, NATO MSG-048 used the JBML input to the PDG in C2-Simulation coupling experiments and demonstrated this at I/ITSEC 2007. The JBML (Joint Battle Management Language) is being developed by the C4I Centre at George Mason University (GMU). The JBML specifies the language using XML Schemas and provides web-services to store and retrieve the information in a JC3IEDM database. In the demonstration three national C2 information systems were used, namely the Netherlands ISIS system, the Norwegian NORTaC-C2IS and the US C2PC/CAPES. An editor for a formal C2 language, C2LG (C2 Lexical Grammar), provided by the German FGAN-FKIE institute was used as an add-on to two of the three national C2ISs. The C2LG has been built in order to support the BML grammar development. This paper describes the adaptation that was done to ISIS and NORTaC-C2IS using a C2LG editor. It also describes briefly the limited experiment that used the BML-enabled C2ISs to interface to two national simulators (the French SCIPIO and the Spanish SIMBAD).
