Research Institution
In this Phase I SBIR , we shall demonstrate, the Integrated Fusion Dashboard, a system that can fuse uncertainties from multi-source data sets using two distinct detection mechanisms. To ensure that the fused product makes sense to the counter-terrorismanalyst, we are pleased to have Mr. Craig Robinson, a decorated and retired 30 year veteran of the DIA to evaluate the results 21st Century Technologies has developed two detection methods to detect possible terrorist activity. TMODS, Terrorist ModusOperandi detection system, contains graph pattern matching and social network analysis detection capabilities that has been developed on multiple projects for DARPA (EELD, Genoa II, TIA programs), and Rome Laboratories and inserted into operationalfacilities at the DIA, Terrorist Information Awareness Center (TIA), and NYPD Counter Terrorism Division. In this Phase I effort, we shall compute and fuse uncertainties from these detection mechanisms. In the Phase I effort, we shall focus on opensource data as a proof of concept with later extensions to multi-source data sets.
