2022 UAF Summit: NATO Architecture Framework & The OMG UAF DMM
Christian Freihoff (German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment & NATO’s Architecture Capability Team)
About this talk
Abstract: The NATO Architecture Framework Version 4 (NAFv4) was published in January 2018. Instead of using a proprietary meta-model, NATO selected two existing ones in the creation of NAFv4 compliant architectures. One of these is OMG’s UAF DMM. During the OMG Technical Meeting in June 2019, Christian outlined the way ahead implementing a NAFv4-based adaptation of the UAF DMM (NAF@UAF) in NATO and the German armed forces. In this presentation at the OMG Summit in March 2022, Christian will provide an update of the current state of migration (from NAFv3.1 to NAFv4@UAF) as well as the development and use of NAFv4@UAF concepts and tools.
