AbstractManagement Sciences (MSI) has developed fundamental technologies to improve situation awareness and agility in dynamic, uncertain environments. For instance, in a USMC SBIR CPP MSI is developing real time situation awareness for Sense and Respond Logistics. In a Phase II DARPA SBIR MSI is developing ePluribus Solver, a collaborative whiteboarding application incorporating distanced teams for problem solving and rapid response. MSI is completing an Army Phase II SBIR that has developed a cognitive fusion architecture enabling models to continuously evolve. We propose to combine these core technologies to design and develop an edge enabled system (EES) for ISR applications. Using our framework called ePluribus EdgeWare, warfighters will develop, extend and combine ISR applications for their particular needs. Situation awareness and response time will improve through sensing and reasoning applications that evolve out of the common needs of individual soldiers. In addition to improving access to information for the dismounted soldier, our approach to EES will increase the relevance of incoming information to a soldiers mission by allowing them to customize how the information is acquired, processed and interpreted. EdgeWare will be developed for Android-based devices with secure access to the warfighter network, such as the General Dynamics GD300 wearable computer.
