  1. Rapid Evaluation of Techniques for Innovative Network Analysis (RETINA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10HS4

    Intelligence analysts"ability to visualize, understand, and reason about terrorist organizations and other covert groups is limited by the current state of the art in network analysis techniques and tools. These techniques and tools work with homogeneous networks that consist of single types of both entity and relationship. They fail to work on heterogeneous networks that consist of multiple types ...

  2. Adaptive Agents for Real-time Data-driven Visualization&Analysis for Relevant Knowledge (AARDVARK)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10HS5

    Current and future non-kinetic operations require U.S. and coalition forces to understand the complex human, social, cultural, and behavioral (HSCB) dimensions of the battlespace. HSCB modeling capabilities aim to improve decision support in these socially complex environments; however, current models"outputs do not generalize across user communities, operational settings, or multiple HSCB contex ...

  3. A Semi-Automated Interpretation-Based Network Construction Tool (SINC-Tool)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10HS6

    While existing tools such as Carnegie Mellon"s Organizational Risk Assessment (ORA) system provide ways to conduct rapid meta-data social network analysis by automatically extracting information from data and performing predictive analysis, purely automated approaches to network construction suffer from several key functional deficits: they often ingest intelligence into a limited set of data repr ...

  4. Analyzing the Stability of Social and Economic Systems ASSESS

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10HS7

    Over the past several years the military"s focus has shifted from a standard, kinetic approach to much more complex missions, stressing counter-insurgency (COIN) and Stability, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction, as made clear in DoD Instruction 3000-05:"Stability operations are a core U.S. military mission that the Department of Defense shall be prepared to conduct with proficiency equivale ...

  5. Immersive Persistent World for Adaptive Cultural Training (IMPACT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10HS8

    The changing landscape of modern warfare has put a premium on individuals and small teams, operating independently, to function efficiently in settings that require cultural awareness. Without proper training, unit tactical effectiveness and resulting mission operational effectiveness weaken. Simulation-based training using virtual environments is rapidly becoming a key enabling technology within ...

  6. Adaptive CUltural Training Engine (ACUTE)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10HS8

    American foreign policy objectives face counter-insurgency and unconventional warfare, presenting foals of securing loyalty of citizens rather than destroying enemy war making capability. Non-kinetic operations characteristic of this warfare require proficiency in interacting with members of local populations. Current training alternatives cannot train sufficient numbers of warfighters, teach only ...

  7. ADEPT: Advancing the Development and Empowering those Poor in Technology

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10HS9

    The richness of technology in our society has resulted in an unprecedented ability for us to understand, model and leverage our social networks. The goal of this project is to bring the same functionality and advantages to technology-poor societies and empower them with a twitter-like, facebook-like, even internet-like capability. Aptima, Inc. and Professor Alex"Sandy"Pentland from MIT propose to ...

  8. Distributed Architecture for Retrieving Information using Universal-Core Semantics (DARIUS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10L05

    A distributed architecture is proposed that supports the tactical warfighter by accepting a plain language request for information and generating a plain language response that summarizes metadata extracted from multi-source sensor data. This metadata is represented and processed using Semantic Web technologies, and organized as data cubes that link content to specific locations and times. Innovat ...

  9. Knowledge Discovery using Mobile Devices

    SBC: Pongr, Inc            Topic: OSD10L06

    A critical need exists to better support expeditionary warfighters in knowledge discovery from imagery and sounds local to their area of operation. Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) knowledge databases contain copious amounts of information on landmarks, terrain, events, activities, and entities that must be efficiently and accurately processed and disseminated to the warfighter. ...

  10. Framework for Large Streaming Data Analysis

    SBC: CyberConnect EZ, LLC            Topic: OSD10L09

    Since existing DoD ISR systems are of a typical stovepipe design, they are slow in speed and it is difficult to adapt them to changing information needs. Recent advancements in multi-media technologies add additional challenges to digesting audio and video stream data for the ISR missions. An increasing number of algorithms and data format conversion routines developed are available, but a clear b ...
