The Office of Naval Research has awarded Decisive Analytics Corp. a $1.5 million contract to develop a system that will work to carry out analytics functions and utilize disparate, multi-modal data to support warfighters and decision-makers.
The SEMantic Powered Event Reasoning system works to tag, identify and provide users information through an intelligent-natural language query mechanism, Decisive Analytics said Thursday.
Decisive Analytics built the system to include functions such as event discovery, trend analysis, open source data anomaly detection, event disambiguation and multi-modal knowledge product generation.
SEMPER will work to support the accuracy, usability and agility of the tactical expeditionary ISR data system, as well as address demands of the civil information exploitation thrust area.
James Nolan, vice president of analytical technologies at decisive analytics, said the company will continue to develop and implement new technologies for the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.
He added that the company will work with the Navy to deliver situational awareness technologies to the intelligence communities.
