Abstract
The potential for biological catastrophes, whether acts of war or naturally occurring, requires military leaders to confront a variety of vexing scenarios. Commanders will be tasked with making difficult decisions that have critical implications for personnel, resources, and mission objectives. The systems currently available to support such decision efforts are disparate, incomplete and inconclusive. Representing the state-of-the-art, current syndromic surveillance systems are insufficient as they neglect mission-relevant objectives, ignore commander decision-making needs, and focus on limited, homogenous data pools. The Aptima team is proposing BioSurveillance Indicators of Notable Events (BioSINE), a solution dedicated to supporting commander decision making surrounding biological crises. This Phase II SBIR effort will provide commanders actionable intelligence, enabling them to prevent, mitigate and respond to bioevents. Beyond monitoring reported illness (which suffers connate lag as it requires symptoms to present), BioSINE will integrate diverse data streams including intelligence, medical, sensor, and open source components. Through information fusion, BioSINE will provide an interactive dashboard to provide intuitive, task-relevant guidance to support commander decision making.
