The role of ontologies in knowledge base systems is gradually increasing. Along with the growth of Internet based applications and e- commerce, the need for easy interoperability between ontologies is paramount. Today methodologies and design guidelines for building and developing ontologies from scratch exist, and others have focused on evolving step-by-step growth of ontologies as shall be discussed in this paper. However, we find inadequate aid in the design of distributed, heterogeneous and multi-functioned, application ontology, primarily aimed to be the central hub for interoperability between a number of other applications which may or may not be ontology based. In this paper, we present a logical context based ontology design architecture in the form of Principle-Subject-Support(PSS) pattern. The PSS pattern has been used as a guide to analyze and model several perspectives involved in a practical case study carried out in a military network simulation project to build a distributed repository ontology (DRONT) for interoperability.
