AbstractNon-Traditional Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (NTISR) is a growing capability for the US military. The concept of every platform, vehicle, soldier, sailor, and airman being a sensor contributing to situational awareness of the operational environment is now firmly entrenched in the psyche of commanders. However, much of the information these non-traditional sensors provide is not readily available in a format that is useful to intelligence analysts. In particular, many of the imaging and video sensors use non-standard data formats lack important metadata tag information to assist analysts with exploitation and dissemination of the data. Securboration has teamed with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company to develop the Semantic Processor for Unconventional Sensors (SPUNCS). SPUNCS will access unstructured, imagery-based, sensor data, reformat the data into DoD standard formats and tag the data with both required fields and more semantically rich fields to aid exploitation centers, analysts, and decision makers in using the information. Combining Lockheed Martin Aeronautics’ expertise in aircraft sensors and data formats and Securboration’s expertise in NTISR and semantic web technology, we will create a marketable technology for the US military and any commercial enterprises dealing with unstructured imagery data.
