Abstract:

For a little over two years, Sterling Software lTD has been developing the Automatic Templating System ATS 1 for automatically extracting entity and event data in the counter-narcotics domain from military messages. This system, part of the Counter Drug Intelligence System CDIS, was built around the NLToolset 2, which was originally developed by GE and is now being developed and supported by Lockheed-Martin. Early results showed that the system was performing better than the human analysts in all aspects. ATS was in its final delivery phase at the same time as our MUC-6 development. We elected to participate despite this conflict, but it did limit us to 4 person-weeks on MUC-6, forcing us to scale back from our original plans and only participate in the NE and TE tasks. The results were more than gratifying.
