Abstract
Future Skies, Inc., a Woman-Owned Small Business, provided a Phase I approach for Army SBIR 2009.2, Topic A09-081"Identity Management of Biometric Data across the Global Information Grid using a Service Oriented Architecture Framework"entitled"Biometric Integration Throughout Tactical Edge Networks (BITTEN): A Biometric Interoperability Framework". We are honored to provide this Phase II proposal at the Army"s request. In the current fight, there are a wide variety of Biometric devices collecting multi-modal data in varied formats. The problem is that needed biometric data cannot be accessed by everyone that needs it in a timely fashion. The goal of BITTEN is to allow users to mine data efficiently across the network, using standard compression techniques to minimize bandwidth use and maximize sharing of recent and relevant information. During Phase I of the SBIR, Future Skies investigated using a service-oriented mediation layer to convert data from potential incoming sources to a common logical data model. Our findings, identified a clear approach to begin prototype development of this mediation layer. We will leverage CERDEC"s Collaborative Battlespace Reasoning and Awareness (COBRA) Semantic Mediation for Army Reasoning and Technology (SMART) as the core of the CERDEC BITTEN development effort.
