ABSTRACT: In today"s war environment, leaders are generating more Requests for Information than ever to support the fight and the MTI sensors providing beneficial information to service these requests are growing in number and capability. Thus analysts must have utilities at their disposal capable of interrogating this immense amount of MTI information in an efficient and effective manner to shorten the time for forensic analysis of MTI and provide leaders in the field a timely and complete product. Black River will work to fulfill this need for adequate MTI analysis utilities by researching and developing automated algorithms that can quickly sift through and enhance the billions of MTI in a given MTI enterprise to provide analysts an optimal set of MTI data within a reduced time delta. Also, Black River plans to define Measures of Performance Statistics to evaluate the MTI enterprises being developed by the MTI community which will exploit system weaknesses and ultimately allow a better product to be provided to the analysts. Thirdly, Black River intends to develop a Baseline MTI Enterprise / research platform for the Air Force that will allow for the testing of the proposed developmental data mining algorithms and MTI enterprise metrics. BENEFIT: Black River's proposed multi-faceted approach provides MTI data mining algorithms that will accelerate the forensic analysis of MTI allowing analysts to more quickly fulfill Requests for Information. The Baseline MTI Enterprise and metrics provides the MTI community with utilities to leverage for the advancement of developmental MTI exploitation algorithms.
