Abstract
comingIn combating terrorism, Warfighters must monitor at risk individuals and groups. The data sources needed to monitor such entities can consist of military sensors as well as open source literature. Key data types include unstructured text, audio, imagery, and biometric data. Currently, there does not exist a way to run specific searches in response to a tactical information need against large distributed data stores. DAC proposes a system called Discovering Valued Information in a Cloud Environment (DVICE). DVICE provides a framework to correlate, fuse, and exploit key observations which have been extracted from distributed data sources (text, imagery, and biometrics) in order to provide a consolidated and correlated knowledge product to the Warfighter. DVICE is based on the Hadoop cloud computing platform.
