Intelligence analysts face increasingly significant challenges in the timely acquisition, correlation and analysis of intelligence information. Recent information technology advances have resulted in explosive growth in the volume and rate of intelligencedata pushed to the analyst. Recent military initiatives, including the Consistent Battlespace Picture (CBP) and the Joint Battlespace Infosphere (JBI), highlight the intelligence community's awareness of these issues.Work remains to be done for building the JBI and leveraging current systems, including CBP. There is a great need for secure collaboration between disjoint sets of users. This multimedia data is critical to providing a complete picture of the battlespaceso that decision-makers and warriors alike have the right information at the right time. By capturing collaboration data, and applying appropriate metadata, filters may be used to automatically communicate information across security boundaries.Trident proposes the development of a robust, secure multimedia recording architecture based on the Distributed Intelligence Collaboration Environment (DICE). DICE, which is part of CBP, has the capability to record audio, video, and whiteboard data. TheDICE Archive System (DAS) will support standard formats and utilize XML technology to identify intelligence products. DAS will significantly improve the Global Awareness capability for the DoD and Intelligence Communities.This work will develop a DII-COE compliant multimedia archive system, compatible with existing AFRL programs, including Broadsword, CBP, and JBI. DAS will enable secure collaboration by capturing multimedia data and applying XML-based tags. Automaticfilters may be used to communicate information across security boundaries. Moreover, by associating XML metadata with the intelligence products, new and innovative content-based retrieval mechanisms may be developed. The work proposed will provide thecapability to reduce the time and cost required to evaluate intelligence data and improve the Global Awareness capability for the DoD and Intelligence Communities.
