Abstract
The Navy"s mission success increasingly relies on complex decision support systems and automation. Navy command and control systems must provide the users with the right information, at the right time, depending on the context in which they are operating, and must do it in a proactive manner. Today, massive quantities of data are passed blindly between nodes, with no ability to adapt the delivery or presentation of information to suit users"needs. To address these challenges, Aptima, with the support of Colorado State University (C.A.P. Smith) and consultant Krishna Pattipati, proposes to develop a Cognitive-service Utilized for Proactive Intelligent Decision-support (CUPID). The Aptima team will ensure success by leveraging a three pronged effort including: 1) groundbreaking theoretical design approach and metrics; 2) rapid prototyping of a tangible Cognitive Service middleware; and 3) pursuing a clearly identified transition environment, the Distributed Common Ground System-Navy (DCGS-N). The Aptima team believes that the CUPID Cognitive Service will offer unique benefits to C2 system designers and users by enabling productive, proactive user interactions.
