Research Institution
This Ranger Phase I SBIR proposes an innovative approach to extracting knowledge from unstructured and semi-structured documents in order to meet critical needs of both government and commercial organizations. This SBIR will specifically address the needs of the 45th Space Wing (45 SW) of the Air Force Space Command. 45 SW provides space launch and range support for the Air Force, DoD, civil, and commercial customers. A key goal of this SBIR is to provide a solution that fits into the 45 SW's Knowledge Management Framework. The 45 SW envisions a single integrated range picture serving critical information needs for the entire spaceport community. This effort will tackle a key challenge in making the vision a reality, which is to extract knowledge from the wealth of unstructured and semi-structured information sources. Ranger will link these sources with structured sources via a unifying enterprise model. Ranger's API make this unified view available to both application developers and to users who want to search for information.
