Intuidex proposes to develop a unified plug and play framework that provides two strategic components in the quest to achieve rapid dissemination and operationalization of tools for analysis, simulation and modeling. The first component is a Common Platform,
developed using an open source model, which will provide a software foundation supporting a multitude of data analysis,
transformation, visualization, modeling, simulation, collaboration and other modules. A Distribution System is the second component, which will serve as a module repository and search mechanism, allowing framework users to find and download modules that meet the analytic capability required. A set of initial analytic modules will also be developed, completing a functional prototype of the framework. The resulting framework prototype will be evaluated by Law Enforcement and Homeland Security officers and analysts for feedback on the perceived functionality, potential, and likelihood of utility of such a framework within their respective agencies. By following a technical and business model similar to many major media providers today (such as Apple through the iTunes Store or Google through the Android Market), this business and technical model is one that is already familiar to much of the workforce and
has also been proven to scale well. At the conclusion of this SBIR, Intuidex will provide design documentation and functional
prototypes of the primary components, plus additional findings such as results from the evaluation.
