Abstract
Soar Technology is teaming with Lockheed Martin to integrate Lockheed Martin’s IFS (Intelligent Fusion System) with Soar Technology’s BINAH (Battlespace Information and Notification through Adaptive Heuristics) system as the base for the development of BINAH-CF (Cognitive Fusion), a cognitive fusion system that will capture and apply analyst knowledge for advanced data fusion tasks. BINAH-CF will enhance BINAH’s visualization and data management capabilities with new capabilities for control of the IFS, integration of context data, capture of the analyst’s knowledge, and modeling of the analyst’s knowledge. It will leverage the analysts’s domain knowledge and cognitive power to produce superior fusion results and will facilitate automation of some of the analyst’s cognitive tasks through learning of knowledge-based algorithms. The system will be developed with a focus on data and tasks relevant to the Air Force. This effort includes both a basic research component and an integration component that will produce a prototype demonstration.
