U.S. MILITARY APPROVES POLEXIS' XIS PLATFORM.

Polexis Inc., San Diego, Calif., an information technology company that creates dynamic enterprise application integration (EAI) solutions for vital information and knowledge management processes, has announced that the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has approved the Extensible Information Systems (XIS(tm)) software platform for deployment as a common service within the Defense Information Infrastructure Common Operating Environment (DII COE), version four.

Developed by Polexis, the XIS platform is a patent-pending technology that augments the capabilities of the military services' DII COE by providing advanced information integration, management, and viewing (visualization) services. As a "common service" within the DII COE, XIS technology enables personnel in the United States' armed forces to pull together information from disparate sources into a consolidated information model supported by all DII COE operating systems (HPUX, Solaris, and Windows NT). Consequently, users can view and manipulate disparate data without being hampered by protocols and platform-specific limitations, which are common barriers to today's distributed information systems.

According to Carlos Persichetti, president and CEO of Polexis, "The approval by DISA marks the final step forward in the widespread deployment of our XIS platform. In effect, this announcement hails the transition of the XIS technology from a research product into an active, operational platform that is actually being positioned for use in the field by the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps personnel around the world."

The XIS platform began development several years ago as a research technology funded through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). In recent months, the Advanced Information Technology Services Joint Program Office (AITS-JPO) has shepherded the XIS technology through the rigorous approval process necessary for acceptance - enabling the operational deployment of XIS for use by the armed forces. "We've passed all of the hurdles for acceptance," said Persichetti, "and we are excited that the Department of Defense will be deploying our technology. It's not every day that you have the opportunity to witness a dream becoming reality. It's a complete validation of XIS as a robust and flexible platform."

Polexis will also continue to develop the XIS platform for widespread commercial application in investment and finance, real estate, tourism, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, healthcare, construction, chemicals, agriculture and other industries.
