Abstract:

Under DARPA and internal funding, Lockheed Martin has been researching information needs profiling to manage information dissemination as applied to logistics, image analysis and exploitation, and battlefield information management. We have demonstrated key software tools to aid in the dissemination of data based on a users needs and the changing world environment. The Lockheed Martin effort has included assisting in the design and development of user information needs models, software that instantiates those information needs models with world information, and software assists in the creation and management of those profiles. We have applied this profiling technology to several applications. Under DARPAs Joint Logistics Program, we are disseminating key transportation, and theater, Defense Logistics Agency, and supplier inventories. Under DARPAs Battlefield Awareness and Data Dissemination program, we are improving both the accuracy and timeliness of smart information push to the warfighter. By applying these techniques, smart push delivers just the right data, to just the right place, at just the right time. Under internal Lockheed Martin funding, we are investigating the use of information profiles to facilitate user interactions with an image analysis and exploitation system. This system integrates several disparate legacy applications communicating over a commercial publish-subscribe middleware package. We are using Lockheed Martins commercial Intelligent Library System ILS to provide image archiving and retrieval. This paper concentrates on the image analysis and exploitation system.
