Research Institution
Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom clearly demonstrate the need for actionable intelligence within tactically useful timelines. ‘Actionable’ means contextually relevant to the mission; ‘tactically useful’ means timely intelligence supporting effective dynamic battle command. The DCGS-A Warfighter will have access to an unprecedented volume of intelligence data (13 PORs spanning seven intelligence domains). In addition, Army ISR data will be combined with joint service, coalition forces, national agency, mission and cultural context information. Modus Operandi proposes Persistent Vigilance, a predictive intelligence capability for unambiguous situational awareness based on intelligent semantic agents. Our objective is for multi-source exploitation to complement existing fusion applications creating a DCGS-A capability with the flexibility to support future military, humanitarian and peace keeping operations. Of critical importance is the ability to generate context sensitive intelligence products which do not overwhelm analysts and are capable of traveling the last tactical mile to disadvantaged users. To accomplish this objective, Modus Operandi will leverage existing technology and perform important research on increasing the velocity of intelligence cycles. Agent-based semantic reasoning over flattened networks is a key solution element. An existing information ontology solution and agent framework will provide the necessary foundation to semantically reason over appropriate corporate memory.
