Securboration Awarded Air Force Contract to Help Increase Operator Situational Awareness and Decision Speeds for Controlling Complex, Highly Dynamic Networks

Securboration has been awarded an Air Force contract to develop information technology which fuses distributed sensing and human perception to increase operator situational awareness and decision speeds for controlling complex, highly dynamic networks. Securboration will be developing the Joint Collaborative Augmentation for Sense-making Environment (JCAUSE). JCAUSE will combine advances in several fields of knowledge including sense making, cognitive science, machine learning, cyber security and visualization with expertise from the command and control realm.

Securboration Awarded Air Force Contract for Mission Awareness for Mission Assurance

Securboration has been awarded an Air Force contract for a new consolidated program called “Mission Awareness for Mission Assurance” (MAMA). The goal of MAMA is to enhance cyber situational awareness by the automated assessment of mission execution through the analysis of network traffic flows. This resultant capability is an enabler to achieving mission assurance by allowing prioritization of mission essential functions, mapping of critical cyber assets, vulnerability assessment of mission essential functions and mitigation of vulnerabilities and risks. Securboration aims to accomplish the goals with the Semantic Templates for Assured Missions in a Proxy-Enabled Dissemination Environment (STAMPEDE) system.

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 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 Air Force Contract for Link Analysis of Knowledge from Social Media

Securboration has been awarded an Air Force contract to research providing 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 need to visualize knowledge extracted from social media communications with the same fidelity provided by using traditional sources.

Securboration Delivers Enhanced Cyber Capability to USTRANSCOM

Securboration, Inc. delivered and deployed a production version of their Cyber Semantic Account Monitoring System (C-SAMS) to the United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) Global C4 Coordination Center (GCCC). C-SAMS supports an organization’s need to proactively monitor how their information technology resources are being used.  C-SAMS uses a combination of statistical and semantic modeling and analysis techniques to develop models of expected and/or allowable user behavior and then proactively monitors the system, detecting deviations from those behaviors. C-SAMS continues to be enhanced as a Commercialization Pilot Program (CPP) Project formalized with a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Technology Transition Plan (STTP) agreement between Securboration, Inc., Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and USTRANSCOM.

Securboration Delivers Cyber Capability to USTRANSCOM

Securboration, Inc. delivered the Alpha version of their Cyber Semantic Account Monitoring System (C-SAMS) to the United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) Global C4 Coordination Center (GCCC). C-SAMS addresses an organization’s need to proactively monitor how their information technology resources are being used.  C-SAMS uses a combination of statistical and semantic modeling and analysis techniques to develop models of expected and/or allowable user behavior and then proactively monitors the system,  detecting deviations from those behaviors. C-SAMS continues to be enhanced as a Commercialization Pilot Program (CPP) Project formalized with a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Technology Transition Plan (STTP) agreement between Securboration, Inc., Air Force Research Laboratory and USTRANSCOM.

Securboration President, Bruce McQueary, emphasizes the importance of this milestone, “this represents the benefit of the SBIR Program to the Government in general, and in this case specifically DoD and its mission critical transportation command. The technology that enables this sophisticated system was developed and matured through the SBIR program, and now is being deployed into an operational command. It represents a true success story for the SBIR Program from all perspectives.”

Securboration Awarded Intelligent C2 Content Distribution System Contract

The Air Force Research Laboratory (Rome Labs) has awarded Securboration a $100,000 Phase I SBIR contract for research and development of secure web-based content distribution systems. Securboration will develop an Intelligent C2 Content Distribution System (IC2CDS) for application in tactical military domains that are susceptible to disconnected, intermittent, and limited connectivity.  Content distribution systems in the commercial world rely on highly available, often private, communications networks and edge nodes that assure speed of access to the end users.  To address this problem, Securboration has teamed with Circadence Corporation, a provider of highly optimized WAN communications systems and with Relevant Security Corporation who provides low latency encryption of data at rest and in transit.  Built upon these technologies, Securboration will develop semantic solutions that make optimal use of the available bandwidth to communicate and position intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) information needs to the edges of the tactical communication network.

Securboration Part of Team Awarded Knowledge Discovery and Dissemination Contract

Securboration is part of a team awarded a Knowledge Discovery and Dissemination (KDD) contract by AFRL Dayton. This project will develop new and novel ways for analysts to quickly produce actionable intelligence using information from multiple data sources. CUBRC (www.cubrc.org) is the prime contractor while Securboration brings its valuable experience with applying semantic technologies.

Securboration awarded Air Force Reserve Command Semantic Enterprise Architecture Development

Securboration was awarded a follow-on contract to continue development of the Semantic Enterprise Architecture (EA) for the Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) at Robins AFB, Warner Robins, GA. The semantic EA utilizes an architecturally driven approach to manage AFRC’s current command systems IT portfolio with the objective of transforming current stovepipe IT systems to a loosely coupled, standards based, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). This award is a continuation of the existing 5 year IDIQ contract with the Air Force Research Lab in Rome, NY.
