Abstract
Valepro proposes DOMINO as an intuitive cross-cultural solution for a common user defined operating picture (UDOP) for multi-mission situational awareness across US and Coalition forces by leveraging existing COTS capabilities used to analyze the global financial markets. The common analytical capabilities resident within these existing financial software packages provides the flexibility to display volumes of multidimensional realtime and archived data both efficiently and in a manner that is readily understandable to the user. By transforming the overall mission domain into a market, DOMINO provides US and Coalition commanders the same tools, techniques and displays used by global financiers and multinational corporations to assess, plan and make real-time coordinated decisions based upon constantly changing updates and breaking news reports. The proposed six month Phase 1 DOMINO effort consists of an assessment task resulting in a functional prototype of the selected visual analytics COTS software package applied to SSA. Within this assessment, US and Coalition space surveillance architectures will be instantiated and the metadata for specific SSA scenarios (e.g. new foreign launch, break-up, re-entry, anomalous maneuver) will be generated. The resulting DOMINO displays will be populated from the underlying data to enable an integrated cross-cultural medium for integrated US/Coalition situational awareness.
