Abstract:

This report presents the CRA the CCID Common Reasoning Algorithm Evaluation activity and its findings for the ONR CRA Development program, for which Raytheon is the prime contractor and HRL is a subcontractor responsible for the evaluation task. The CRA is a new implementation of the CCID algorithm CIDER, which was developed by RaytheonHRL under the ONR CCID Phase-I program. Like CIDER, CRA also contains an ingest module and a Dempster-Shafer D-S engine. Functionally, the new CRA ingest module replaces the CIDER ingest module, and the new CRA D-S engine replaces HRLs VBS Kernel D-S engine used in CCID Phase-I. The two parts of the system use the same interface protocol and are interchangeable. The goal of the evaluation task is to evaluate the performance of the new CRA ingest module and D-S engine to verify that the new CRA matches or out-performs CIDER. The remainder of this report is organized as follows Summary of the Evaluation Results Scope of the Evaluation Overview of Evaluation Methods CID Performance Evaluation Run Log Comparisons Run-Time, Memory, and Processor Usage and Conclusion.
