This paper describes an approach to building adaptable real-time command and control (C2) systems. In particular, it presents an overview of the Adaptable Real-Time Distributed Object Management (ARTDOM) project in progress at the MITRE Corporation. This project is currently developing real-time extensions for the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) Trading Object Service. The goal of the project is to demonstrate how current C2 systems can be more easily upgraded and made more adaptable by using emerging distributed computing technology. This goal is being accomplished by investigating and developing real-time middleware that is reflexive (i.e., capable of examining its current state and processing demands) and self-adapting (i.e., capable of reconfiguring itself based on its reflective findings).
