This award will leverage the considerable work our Research and Development business unit has worked on over the past five years.
Colorado Springs, CO (Vocus) April 13, 2010
Intelligent Software Solutions has been awarded an Air Force contract to automate behavioral reasoning in the space situational awareness domain. The research and development effort will provide the automated ability to alert space operators to anomalous behavior and threats to United States space assets.
The SSA via Predictive Intelligent Reification of multi-INT Threat-models or SPIRIT program will focus on the use of machine learning and automated reasoning capabilities to cue space operators and analysts to potential threatening actions to U.S. space assets. The program will explore the application of semantic web technologies and the use of semantic inferential reasoning in concert with other automated reasoning techniques to highlight the power of a hybrid learning and reasoning system.
ISS will be joined in this research effort by partner Modus Operandi (MO). The effort will leverage MO's Wave® Exploitation Framework (Wave-EF) to exploit unstructured textual information as a source of information for SPIRIT's machine learning and automated reasoning capabilities.
According to Carl Houghton, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at ISS, “This award will leverage the considerable work our Research and Development business unit has worked on over the past five years. We will combine this experience with our subject matter expertise in the space domain to deliver a highly innovative and powerful capability to protect our nation’s highly valuable space assets.”
