This paper describes a recently-initiated project to extend TAO to make it better capable of flexibly and effectively
adapting to provide a sufficient level of timeliness and other quality of service (QoS) to dynamic environments that
have varying workloads and dynamic real-time requirements. The project is a joint effort among The U.S. Navy
SPAWAR Systems Center San Diego (SPAWAR), Tri-Pacific Software, Raytheon Electronic Systems (Raytheon),
and the University of Rhode Island (URI).
