Abstract
Modern submarines are outfitted with a variety of increasingly sophisticated sensors. Yet each sensor provides its data in a unique format and presents it through a unique user interface. Moreover, there are uncertainties associated with any sensor data. This uncertainty can be reduced by comparing and correlating data from different sensors, but currently information from different sensors must be manually inspected and correlated. An additional difficulty is presented by the large amounts of information that are present in unstructured data sources. Information such as weather data, commander's intent, human intelligence, and mission parameters are commonly provided in these or similar formats. This information is not accessible to automated processing, correlation, and fusion, and therefore it must be manually examined and parsed for relevant information. Modus Operandi proposes to solve these problems through development of Wave System of Systems (Wave-SOS), an innovative Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework for accomplishing multi-INT fusion of information from multiple disparate sensors and performing text analysis, semantic enrichment, and metadata annotation of text-based information sources. Wave-SOS will provide submarine control room personnel, and ultimately commanders, with a vastly improved common operating picture allowing them to perform more mission types with greater confidence.
