Securboration Awarded Contract to Automatically Mark Intelligence Data With Appropriate Classification

Securboration has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Air Force to automate classification and releaseability marking of intelligence data by using metadata tagging to speed sharing of information between multiple, independent security domains. The goal of this effort is to provide almost real-time exchange, dissemination, search, access, display and association of disparate information across multiple communities of interest. Inconsistent population of sensor data fields are currently hampering the sharing of data and slows analysis by requiring the analyst to manually search multiple sources for significant data. Securboration will apply semantic modeling to provide a solution that not only explains the rationale for marking to the user but also can be easily tailored by the analyst as needed.

Securboration to Research Link Analysis of Knowledge from Social Media for Air Force

Securboration has been awarded an Air Force contract to research link analysis of knowledge extracted from social media communications. The social media involved will include blogs, Twitter-like messages, social networking posts, and bulletin board threads. Securboration’s experience with semantic technologies will be leveraged to assist the military’s need to visualize knowledge extracted from social media communications with the same fidelity provided by using traditional sources.

Securboration Awarded Air Force Contract to Improve Understanding of Blue Force Readiness Awareness

Securboration has been selected by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to define, develop and demonstrate innovative approaches to accurately present and represent globally-distributed blue force readiness and capability in a timely manner. Securboration will develop the Blue-force Awareness Capability and Understanding System (BACUS). This system will collect blue force information from multiple sources, perform semantic reasoning over this gathered information with respect to current mission strategies, generate a representation of the blue force state in standardized interoperable formats, and publish the representation to systems that support Integrated Battle Planning Capability. These capabilities in BACUS will enable it to help improve the blue force situational awareness in the battle planning community.

Securboration Awarded Contract for Automated Multi-Processor Conversion Capability for Legacy Software

Securboration has been awarded a contract by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) to develop techniques for automatically parallelizing existing sequential code. Processor speeds have plateaued and manufacturers have turned to multi-processor architectures to increase computing power. The cost of purchasing new multi-processor hardware is small in comparison to the cost of rewriting sequential legacy software to take advantage of the multi-processor environment. Securboration is creating the Tri-tier Architectural Modeling Environment (TAME) to provide an automated way to convert legacy sequential software into multi-threaded software that is fully capable of exploiting multiple processors. TAME will involve profiling, parallelizing, optimizing, and verifying of the software without changing the source code. This novel approach aims to allow existing legacy code to be improved in regard to performance while not requiring any of the source code to be rewritten and retested therefore providing significant cost savings and minimize risk.

Securboration Awarded Contract for Many-Core Operating System Efficiency

Securboration has been awarded a contract by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) for researching and defining operating system mechanisms to efficiently partition, communicate, and execute programs on many-core systems. Manufacturers have increased the number of computing cores instead of increasing clock speed. This contract continues previous work which aimed to focus on allowing efficient operation of many programs which can be easily maintainable, adapatable, and usable by administrators with minimal training as number of processors, memory, and available communications bandwidth change.

Securboration Awarded Air Force Adaptive Workspace Contract

Securboration has been selected by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to explore, systematically study and develop technology that enables computers to proactively support analyst activity. The goal is to provide a bidirectional human and information technology partnership where the computer learns, adapts and informs analysts based on their typical practices, situational context, and available data content. The system under development, referred to as the Adaptive Data Immersion Environment or ADIEN, combines machine learning, text analytics, and semantic search to learn and evolve user preferences based on individual usage patterns. Additionally, as new data products become available they will be automatically identified and seamlessly added into analyst’s workspace. These capabilities in ADIEN will enable it to act as personalized, proactive assistant that can automatically tailor the workspace to the analyst’s needs while also automatically identifying and processing information potentially relevant to their missions.

Securboration Awarded Army Contract for Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social Media

Securboration has been awarded a contract by the United States Army to develop analytical tools that improve the theoretical relevance, meaning, reliability and validity of data extracted from social media sources. The social ties between users can have varying strengths and this effort seeks to identify more meaningful ties that create a strong online community from the noise surrounding them. Securboration intends to create a Social media Understanding and Reasoning Framework (SURF) that will use structured and unstructured social media information to identify significant social topologies, motifs, embedded online communities and individual characteristics. This effort will seek to combine well-grounded social theory with mathematical theory, graph theory and computational theory to create analytical tools for mining of social media.

Securboration shares transition success story at 2012 National SBIR Beyond Phase II Conference

Mr. Stirtzinger was a speaker at the 2012 National SBIR Beyond Phase II Conference. As a panel member for the Small Business Case Studies session, Mr. Stirtzinger presented his experience with successfully transitioning three SBIR technologies into operational capabilities at USTRANSCOM over the last two years. Each of these SBIR efforts achieved TRL 9. The presentation focused on Securboration’s company-wide directive on executing SBIR efforts with a high priority on transition opportunities. Integral to this company-wide approach is the early introduction of research to operational Commands and commercial companies. Early exposure to the DoD warfighter community and continued involvement throughout  the research helps insure that real needs are addressed and functional support can be directly delivered to end users.

Securboration Awarded Navy Contract for Enhanced Summarizations of Streaming Text

Securboration has been awarded a contract by the United States Navy to dynamically summarize unstructured streaming data, and characterize its relevance to Critical Information Requirements (CIR).  Mining of streaming data sources such as new feeds and social media involves sifting through large amounts of information, much of which is irrelevant to any particular information requirement. Securboration will provide the ability to extract relevant information from the data using semantic algorithms that map information and metadata to CIRs; as well as dynamically identifying new topics based on postings as they are received in real time. Securboration will process the streaming unstructured data using its proven semantic reasoning capabilities with the goal of providing dynamic, robust summarizations of events whose meaning becomes more richly developed as new postings regarding the events occur.

Securboration Awarded Contract for Many-Core Operating System Efficiency

Securboration has been awarded a contract by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) for researching and defining operating system mechanisms to efficiently partition, communicate, and execute programs on many-core systems. Thermal constraints have led manufacturers to increase the number of computing cores instead of increasing clock speed. This contract aims to focus on allowing efficient operation of many programs which can be easily maintainable, adapatable, and usable by administrators with minimal training as number of processors, memory, and available communications bandwidth change.
