Research Institution
The GIG and other tactical networks are highly dynamic and contain an unknown number of data sources at any point in time. The number of data sources on these networks is growing at a much faster pace than our ability to discover them and process the information they provide into usable information. The challenge is to develop capabilities that leverage the GIG's Content Discovery Services to proactively seek out new data sources that are relevant and exploit them to enable the Commander to gain information superiority. The DAC Team proposes a novel combination of natural language processing, data mining, and predictive technologies to build an intelligent architecture to perform Smart Battle Command Information Discovery and Filtering. This effort will build on DAC's experience in deploying intelligent agents to perform data mining and course-of-action forecasting in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Our approach will allow the Commander to focus his attention on the problems that are of highest importance and of utmost relevance to the current mission. The results of this effort will be an intelligent agent architecture that is interoperable with Army systems such as the Army Battle Command System (ABCS) and the Command Post of the Future (CPOF).
