To address HSARPAs need for advanced network tools and data mining enabled network interfaces, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Customs and Immigration Telecommunications Hyperlinking User Interface implemented via a Layered Hybrid Unbounded Graph Structure (CTHULHU) system. This proposed system is based on a novel multilayered architecture and implemented using graphhashtable hybrid data structures. CTHULHU offers automated case conflict notices, autonomously facilitates case deconfliction, allows assignment of weights to links between suspects and associates, and provides methods to manually createdelete links. The proposed CTHULHU directly helps Homeland Security by providing a costeffective solution. In Phase I, POC will demonstrate the feasibility of CTHULHU by developing a TRL 4(5 prototype, and demonstrating linking capability far in excess of HSARPAs four link requirement and its ability to compile information from a range of sources and present this in an easytoread format. In Phase II, POC plans to optimize the CTHULHU technology to a TRL 5(6 and expand its tool set to include voice pattern association and matching across cases, importing and exporting from additional external databases, and a full reporting suite. In addition to its DHS benefits, CTHULHU offers significant commercial benefits for users of data mining applications.
