Abstract:

Several concerns currently inflate the time and cost of integrating heterogeneous data resources and impose a barrier to superior knowledge of the urban battlespace: global data standards cannot be imposed across all enterprises' schemas, specialized expertise is required to map new data sources into existing ontologies, and some data resources are not intranet accessible by default. In this Phase I SBIR project for DARPA, Bashpole Inc. will design and demonstrate the feasibility of Mashalator, a database translator appliance for integrated exploitation. Mashalator will enable administrators to incorporate new data resources onto enterprise networks in a tenth of the time normally required for setting up database translators and provide relatively untrained personnel with a no-coding process to create queries that derive actionable intelligence for urban spaces. This will be achieved with highly automated mapping, bounded mapping effort, bounded answer scope, and bounded answer quality on a physical device with a software system that can be attached to fielded machines. In Phase I, Bashpole will investigate viability and design approaches of the proposed exploitation technology, validate the design through experimentation in the laboratory with real data, and evaluate potential benefts.
