Abstract:

NRL Code 8100 is developing the Common Distributed Virtual DatabaseInformation Extraction CDVDIE System for the U.S. Coast Guard USCG Maritime Intelligence Fusion Center MIFC in Dam Neck, Virginia. The CDVDIE semiautomatically identifies vessels via multisource data. This provides the USCG with maritime domain awareness of vessels operating in an area of responsibility AOR encompassing the Atlantic Ocean, north of the equator, and the Gulf of MexicoCaribbean Sea. NRL system and software engineers have designed an architecture that implements a multilevel data aggregation and semiautomated tracking system. The CDVDIE enables the MIFC to monitor potential vessels of interest VOIs and automatically generates alerts when behaviors meeting user-defined parameters are detected. The CDVDIE Program is sponsored by the U.S. Navy USN Office of Naval Research ONR and is scheduled for delivery to the MIFC during summer 2006. During fiscal year 2007, NRL and the USCG will exercise the system and assess suitability to support an upgradable path using multiple CDVDIE installations to form a distributed maritime community grid. The CDVDIE System uses a suite of commercial and NRL developed computing technologies and resources to address two main areas 1 Multilevel Security Architecture and 2 Data Aggregation and Semiautomated Tracking Capability.
