Research Institution
This Phase II SBIR effort will design and demonstrate enabling technology for fast text processing in the presence of noisy inputs while achieving semantically rich extractions of actionable knowledge from unstructured text data. The successful Phase I project demonstrated the ability to process ten gigabytes of raw text data in less than 15 minutes, the DARPA Phase I benchmark. The proposed Phase II project will build on those results to enhance the ONSITE methods, refine the ONSITE architecture, and demonstrate a focused and scalable tactical military application of the ONSITE technology. Anticipated Phase II results include (1) Innovative ONSITE text processing methods that exceed the DARPA challenge; (2) An application-validated ONSITE architecture; (3) A set of technology components that realize the ONSITE architecture; (4) An ONSITE Phase II application design and demonstration; and (5) An ONSITE technology transition and commercialization plan. The form and nature of the proposed research is targeted at supporting tactical influence operations against enemy networks. It is anticipated that the results of this research can be easily extended to include other tactical domains, such as patrol mission planning, insurgent extraction, and hostage rescue.
