Abstract
"The aim of this proposal is to develop, build and validate a Technology Vulnerability Analysis and Prediction System (TVAPS) that integrates intelligent knowledge discovery techniques (for detecting technology vulnerability dimensions), predictive models(for predicting technology trends), model fusion (to merge multiple predictions), and an optimization framework (for optimal response evaluation) to facilitate robust and cost-effective detection of vulnerable technologies. The developed toolkit willprovide a comprehensive decision support system that facilitates the automated generation of useful knowledge from disparate and distributed information sources to support early detection of emerging vulnerability threats. The Phase I effort will (i)establish TVAPS requirements, (ii) design the TVAPS architecture, (iii) develop and demonstrate prototype TVAPS software. The principal project benefits are (i) Innovative new capability to rapidly, reliably, and accurately detect and predict vulnerabletechnologies, (ii) Significant reductions in time and effort needed to convert distributed data to action enabling decision information, and (iii) The ability to explore a significantly larger number of information sources and decision alternatives at thesame cost and time. The most significant benefit of TVAPS is that it will provide access to sophisticated technology to a wide audience of potential users in the military intelligence communit
