The United States Transportation Command Operations Directorate (USTRANSCOM/J3) has awarded Securboration a contract to support the J3 Knowledge Management Officer by providing automated intelligence to organize, prioritize and route incoming mission critical messages. By leveraging Securboration’s Semantic Grounding Mechanism, Action Officers will be able to rapidly assess the condition of the Joint Deployment and Distribution Enterprise (JDDE) in order to determine lift asset availability as well as infrastructure constraints to properly influence force movement planning and sustainment decisions. Applying Securboration’s suite of semantic technologies to the vast amount of incoming data will greatly reduce Action Officer monitoring workloads and focus attention on time sensitive mission critical information.
The Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) has awarded Securboration a Phase II $750,000 contract to further develop the Semantic Ontology-Assisted Matching System (SOAMS) to facilitate interoperability in net-centric operations. SOAMS will minimize a significant current roadblock to interoperability – namely a lack of semantic understanding of the types of information that need to be exchanged among systems in a net-centric environment. SOAMS uses Securboration’s Semantic Grounding Mechanism to provide a common understanding of a systems capabilities and data requirements that is based on semantics instead of rigid syntax. This enables automated, intelligent comparison and alignment of data exchanged among systems. The results of this research will reduce the manual effort and time required for disparate systems to interoperate and help DoD move closer to achieving the ultimate net-centric vision.
