The interoperable Systems Management and Requirements Transformation (iSMART) process is an internationally accepted means to achieve visibility of interoperability challenges in the development of information systems and communications media, including tactical data links. It provides analysis of interoperability across operational and strategic data communications systems as well as down to the tactical edge where the warfighter is located.
The iSMART process is a systems engineering approach to achieving interoperability in a cost-effective manner. It is the adoption of iSMART that ‘provides an early insight to IO issues and an opportunity to cost effectively correct these before development commences.’ This iSMART Handbook describes the elements of the iSMART process, the various products that can be achieved and the breadth of analysis which can take place. It shows the utility of iSMART during the development of a proposed system or its application in a fielded system of systems.
The strength of the iSMART process is the way separate elements can be used individually for small focused analysis or combined, synergistically, to provide a valuable analysis pertaining to the interoperability of the systems under consideration. iSMART is used internationally to support the achievement of effective interoperability at many levels. It is currently the IO process of choice in the US, UK, Australia, The Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, and Sweden, amongst others. Its application can be tailored to particular national requirements/reference implementation specifications.
