Under this SBIR program, Lakota Technical Solutions, Inc. (Lakota) will develop a Level 4 fusion (Process Refinement) capability implemented within a cloud computing architecture. Leveraging an existing Multi-Sensor Exploitation Management System (MSEMS), Lakota will define cloud-based services for: (1) multi-INT sensor information storage and retrieval, (2) automated information needs assessment, and (3) assignment of sensor tasks to sensor resources. To realize a scalable capability with respect to the number of sensor assets and information needs, open-source cloud computing technologies will be employed to execute and distribute the MSESM functionality across a network of commodity hardware using a distributed semantic knowledge base for efficient storage, retrieval, and reasoning about multi-INT sensor information. Using the modular, extensible, and maintainable MSEMS architecture in conjunction with the scalability of cloud computing, the proposed approach offers a large-scale process refinement framework that aligns sensor collection needs with changing mission requirements and knowledge fidelity.
