The Command, Control, Communications, and Computer (C4) Systems Directorate (J6) of the United States Defense Department's Joint Staff has issued a Request For Information (RFI)/Sources Sought Notice (SS) (solicitation number: DASW01-RFI 03-01-02) seeking to "find possible XML applications to interoperability among command and control (C2) national security systems".

The document states that the C4 Systems Directorate:

wishes to exploit the maximum potential offered by the Extensible Markup Language to enhance the interoperability of command and control (C2) national security systems. Respondents are invited to propose strategies, products and services to achieve C2 systems interoperability through the use of XML. In addition, respondents are invited to comment on the effect of the government specifying the use of XML as a general-purpose exchange mechanism for non-near-real time information exchange.

The document requests that comments be submitted via e-mail, as an attachment in Microsoft Word format (Word 2000 or earlier), to Charles Schaffer <charles.schaffer@js.pentagon.mil>, or to the following postal address:
