Research Institution
Computer Science Innovations, Inc. (CSI) proposes to research and develop the Range Operations Data Extraction and Ontology (RODEO) System. RODEO encompasses an ontology for the space launch and range operations domain, an information extraction subsystem (IES) to identify relevant concepts in structured and unstructured data, and an information management subsystem (IMS) to facilitate user access and capability to use relevant information sources. CSI proposes an ontology-based approach to provide a practical and scaleable solution to integrating unstructured data with structured data from multiple data sources situated in diverse organizations that support the 45th Space Wing (45 SW). Currently, integration of information from the numerous diverse sources is predominantly a manual, paper-based process. RODEO research will extend CSI's leading edge graph theoretic knowledge representation and processing and information extraction (IE) technologies which are based on a hybridized symbolic/statistical approach to NLP, thereby improving overall accuracy and flexibility. Successful research will facilitate future applications that require enhanced precision and recall beyond today's "state of the art". A preliminary ontology and feasibility prototype will be developed under the Phase I program, along with an architectural blueprint for the system to be developed under a subsequent Phase II program.
