Abstract
Modern net-centric warfare produces and consumes a tremendous amount of data. This data is produced by multiple systems over time and is in different forms and formats. This can easily become overwhelming to an analyst, who must be able to quickly determine the impact of anomalous events or changing trends. New methods are needed to further filter data and extract more meaningful relationships among facts discovered across multiple datasets. The success of the warfighter is not only threatened by the sheer volume of information, but by the increasing risk of conflicting and misleading intelligence. This problem must be addressed for the DoD to remain successful on an increasingly chaotic battlefield. In response to these issues, Edaptive Computing, Inc. presents an innovative solution that specifically addresses the requirements of the OSD and provides a significant step toward analyzing multiple, large, and heterogeneous datasets. This approach consists of data mining agents employing various advanced techniques implemented on scalable distributed platforms. As a result, these techniques can discover new relationships between current events, other intelligence, and historical data. Ultimately, the GUARDS solution allows an analyst to perform critical decision-making with confidence and clear awareness of the situation.
