Abstract
Several concerns currently inflate the time and cost of integrating heterogeneous data resources and impose a barrier to superior knowledge of the urban battle-space. Mashalator semi-automatically integrates heterogeneous battlefield information sources for the urban war-fighter and enables the execution of coherent queries over the integrated sources. Mashalator Phase II will leverage civilian-facing commercialization to develop two core, dual use technologies, herein called Base 1 and Base 2, and several salable products with these that, though initially targeted at the private sector, will easily be converted for military and government uses during Phase III, herein proposed as Options 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, and 2.2. We have secured outside funding in support of this project already ($99k), expect to secure transition partner support from RDECOM for Phase III prior to completion of Phase II, and have letters of support from partners who will ensure commercial success. Mashalator Phase II will develop Base 1 in Year 1 into a Universal Connector for databases and Base 2 in Year 2 into a Distributed Recommendation Engine to solve ubiquitous problems faced by e-commerce business systems that, at a technical level, mirror the military problems motivated above insofar as recommendations are a useful form of predictions.
