Abstract:

The overarching goal of our multi-year research agenda is to proactively model the non-linear cascading effects of interdependencies in Major Defense Acquisition Program MDAP networks. This document captures the progress that my team and I have made for the duration of this project. Specifically, we discuss the decision support architecture we describe our progress towards a scalable, automated approach for extracting and analyzing the data in the form of Selected Acquisition Reports SAR and Defense Acquisition Executive Summaries documents of a network of MDAPs to support a decision-theoretic risk prediction model. Automation is necessitated by the volume and complexity of the data. We will discuss the role of topic modeling, image extraction and identification of topological features of the MDAP network in this approach.
