The 21CT Team comprised of 21st Century Technologies (21CT) and Calspan University of Buffalo Research Center (CUBRC) presents PASS, Pattern, group, and link Analytics to support Sudden Spirit. PASS will integrate 21CT and CUBRC's Link and Group Understanding (LGU) technology into the Air Force WebTAS (Time Analysis System) to provide a service oriented, geo-spatially-based social network analytic for the Air Force Intelligence and Analysis Agency (AFIAA). CUBRC's persistent surveillance fusion technology, INFERD (INformation Fusion Engine for Real-time Decision making), contains real-time fusion capabilities that flag asymmetric activities of interest as a function of geospatial coordinates. INFERD will be integrated into TMODS' pattern matching and group detection capability to provide a geo-spatial, link and group understanding capability to detect illicit activity associated with civil air assets. This integrated capability will enable WebTAS to map the movement of groups or other organizational structures associated with civil air assets to physical locations that have threat characteristics to provide indicators and warnings resulting from enemy intent. In summary, PASS would provide AFIAA with the capability to perform advanced link, group, and pattern capabilities that would drastically improve targeting over the current manual methods.
