ABSTRACT: In this SBIR project, Daniel H. Wagner Associates, Inc. will develop a cloud-based infrared (IR) data management capability for the Air Force, which we will name CIRRUS, short for Cloud-based IR Remote User Services. CIRRUS will provide high-performance IR data management on the Secure Cloud that is highly available, focused on end-user requirements, and easy to use and manage. CIRRUS will provide end-user tools for analysts to develop IR data/product subscriptions and queries, display results, and share products and tools with other analysts across the community. CIRRUS will be based on existing cloud computing standards, practices, and tools, including critical security practices regarding authentication, encryption, and segmentation. CIRRUS will make use of open source user interface components providing lightweight access to the system from a wide variety of network-connected devices. Finally, CIRRUS will make use of IR data-specific compression techniques to maximize data availability across the community. BENEFIT: Benefits to the Air Force will include improved end-user access to IR data, products, and tools and increased potential for data/product and tool sharing in Air Force, Joint, and Coalition operations, leading to higher overall mission success across the entire surveillance community.
