Abstract
The goal of this program will be to investigate the issues associated with the development of a cognitive nuclear, biological and chemical threat data correlation and munitions effects analysis support system that is capable of supporting both training andoperational deployments. BRC is a major support contractor for the Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Research & Development Center (ERDC). In this role we support munitions maintenance, development, integration and analysis using several validated computermodels including the COBRA, Anti-Terrorist Planner and PENCURV models, which are used to accomplish vulnerability analysis of infrastructure assets using physical modeling. We also support the Army Threat Systems Management Office in the development oftools for cognitive reasoning, battle damage assessment and vulnerability assessment. Our proposal leverages work being accomplished at these agencies by integrating our current work in vulnerability assessment with work in cognitive (knowledge) processingto produce a data correlation architecture that produces a cognitive nuclear, biological, and chemical munitions effects analysis toolkit that facilitates the rapid assessment of multiple variables to produce a graphic depiction of potential munitionseffects and create the standardized alerts necessary to support rapid decision-making and dissemination. If successful, the Phase I program will lay the groundwork for full-scale development and demonstration of a cognitive nuclear, biological, andchemical munitions effects analysis toolkit that facilitates the rapid assessment of multiple variables to produce a graphic depiction of potential munitions effects and create the standardized alerts necessary to support rapid decision-making anddissemination. The Phase II program will fully develop and test the individual components and resolve key technical issues before going on to Phase III.
