Modus Operandi software to help Navy enhance intelligence data analysis aboard submarines

MELBOURNE, Fla., 27 Jan. 2009. Software developer Modus Operandi in Melbourne, Fla., won a U.S. Navy contract to improve intelligence data processing in next-generation submarines.

MELBOURNE, Fla., 27 Jan. 2009. Software developer Modus Operandi in Melbourne, Fla., won a U.S. Navy contract to improve submarine signal processing for analyzing intelligence data.

The $70,000 Phase I Small Business Innovation Research contract -- known as Wave System of Systems (Wave SOS) -- calls for Modus Operandi to develop a semantic service-oriented fusion framework to integrate submarine sensor data to help on-board analysts quickly interpret sensor data.

Modus Operandi will use its Wave Exploitation Framework, a semantic enhancement for service-oriented architectures such as the Navy SOA reference implementation, to accelerate the discovery and fusion of relevant multi-source intelligence and submarine sensor data.

To counter advanced threats, the Navy is designing and retrofitting submarines with improved sensors, weapons, and communications systems. Modus Operandi software will represent and fuse submarine sensor information and provide decision support.

"Our part in supporting the Navy's requirement is to provide the semantic glue needed to fuse multi-source sensor data in a meaningful way, allowing system users to recognize adversarial activities within the context of diverse Navy missions." says Richard Hull, vice president and chief scientist at Modus Operandi.
