NIMA plans to evolve MATRIX to object request broker (ORB) framework, implement multisource intelligence tools (MINT), and develop new integration support approaches for USIS 2000. IMINT is transitioning MATRIX to a CORBA based GOTS tool kit. The result is a suite of user-selectable GOTS-unique CORBA-based tools and applications. NIMA plans to evolve from MATRIX to MINT with a transition strategy continuing to support MATRIX until the "TBRs" are resolved. Final MATRIX release is planned for mid FY 97, and the final version will be deployed at the user's discretion throughout the transition period. Effective January 1998, the MATRIX resources will fully transition to support integration of MINT with standards based COTS software applications. The new integration support concept is cost sharing between NIMA and the user sites for support or the integration sites.
