Abstract:

The concept of accessing multiple repositories and the ability to treat those heterogeneous repositories as a single virtual database is a timely and worthwhile pursuit for the intelligence community. MSP provides the ability to create a virtual database from many legacy intelligence systems and allows for real-time correlative queries and union views of system related information at one time. This effort has succeeded in providing a tool to query the Imagery Exploitation Support System IESS, Modernized Integrated Data Base MIDB, and the Image Product ArchiveImage Product Library IPAIPL and returning a unified set of query results of information from each of thee databases. The MSP implementation of an intuitive web interface also provides a wide range of users access to this federated view with less training than required of a full functionality client interface. The main COTS products used for this implementation were the Virtual DB formerly marketed as PANGEA by Enterworks, a subsidiary of TELOS and a Netscape browser. The MSP is also capable of retrieving thumbnails and full frame imagery from the IPAIPL. Specialized queries for geographic processing and custom queries for co-located targets are also provided.
