Abstract
This Phase I SBIR project will focus on the design of intelligent information management techniques across large-scale enterprises, with special emphasis on the needs of the Department of Defense (DoD), but with applicability to a wide array of government and commercial applications. Building on research and development in the areas of knowledge representation, distributed databases, information flow optimization and intelligent compression, and multi-agent systems, we will design a robust Context Management Architecture (CMA) to provide end-users with operationally relevant information from the continually growing number of networked data sources (e.g., distributed sensors, online databases, decision support systems). The CMA will provide efficient and effective information management for distributed applications by maintaining conversations among nodes based on varying levels of domain content awareness, while abstracting the underlying data sources into a virtual data store. If awarded, Phase II will lead to a prototype implementation of the CMA, with special emphasis on an identified Phase III transition target (e.g., a DoD program of record), but with extensibility to other government and commercial enterprises.
