Abstract:

There has been a massive growth in the volume and sources of data that can enhance the situational awareness of modern soldiers. Unfortunately, the capabilities of tactical networks have failed to keep pace with this growth, and a number of critical network constraints limit the ability of soldiers to effectively share and leverage available data. Tactical decision making, therefore, is subject to the risks associated with poorly informed Situational Awareness (SA) (e.g., incorrect assumptions, poor decision making). To improve soldier SA at the edge of the tactical network, Charles River Analytics is pleased to present our approach for designing, demonstrating and evaluating Services for Situational Awareness Through Uncertainty Representation of Ad-Hoc Network Data (SATURN). SATURN can be summarized in three major components: (1) our solution will allow the soldier to manage their own SA needs through simplistic user interfaces driven by programmatic SDK Libraries that can be incorporated into any common operational picture; (2) our solution will provide real-time processing, management, and storage of incoming intelligence data to support evolving SA needs through flexible data constructs; and (3) our solution will infer and efficiently present meta-information alongside entities and events required by active COIs to ensure adequately synchronized soldier SA.
