Is it possible? It is expected, however, that a growing number of commands and components will adopt V2. For such organizations, architectural descriptions they may have developed in accordance with prior versions of DoDAF should brought into compliance with V2. In addition, architectural data should be stored in a data system — PowerPoint, Visio, Excel, etc.

Operational Activity to Services Traceability Matrix Purpose SINERGY architecture specification was developed primarily to guide decision-makers on university campuses make acquisition decisions and develop strategies regarding the provision and maintenance of safety within their campuses. The architecture provides a university-wide solution to balancing openness and safety within campus environments through capabilities that enable security control, situational awareness, and emergency response management.

In addition, SINERGY architecture specification was developed to understand the true requirements of the issues relating to campus safety and emergency management.

It provides a blueprint to guide the design, development, and deployment of systems that can be used across open campuses to provide security control, situational awareness, and emergency response management capabilities. Finally, a successful demonstration of the effectiveness of SINERGY architecture through architecture evaluation leads to implementations of software-based, network-centric systems of systems enabling institutions to be prepared to respond to man-made tragedies on their campuses.

The impact can reach millions of students, faculty, and staff in thousands of colleges, universities, and other open campus environments.

We categorize these IUs by stakeholder categories. Decision-makers face the challenge to ensure that their campuses provide an open learning environment and at the same time safe. Existing technology solutions are characterized by addressing bits and pieces of the problem e. Without a comprehensive, innovative understanding of the requirements for an institution-wide solution that enables effective security control and efficient emergency response, the proposed solutions fall short from the desired outcomes.

The Campus Environment The first step toward an effective solution is to understand the operating environment. The scope of SINERGY architecture is confined to an open campus environment, where access to campus facilities is generally open to faculty, staff, students, and campus visitors.

Shared campus facilities include the gym, athletic facilities, library, hallways, cafeterias, administrative office buildings, and residential halls. Figure 1 depicts an overview of the facilities in an open campus environment. In other words, a safe and open campus environment can be realized through a system that enables the creation of a common operating picture COP of the campus environment shared by all campus entities i. Having a common picture of what goes on campus at any point in time is key to enabling effective security control measures to be put in place i.

Finally, common situational awareness and effective security control lay the foundation for an efficient and effective emergency response management in the case of an emergency.

Guidance References The SINERGY architecture describes a solution that will exist within a larger set of business rules that guide the day-to-day operation of a university campus. Educational institutions are required to comply with state and federal regulations in the preparation for emergencies and establishment of contingency plans for responding to threats that could harm personnel, faculty, students, or property. The developers of this architecture permit the unlimited reuse and distribution of part or all of the architecture for non-commercial purposes, provided that clear attribution to the original authors is specified.
