Abstract

Communications are vital to the success of any military organization and the U. S. Navy is better connected than ever. The use of classified wide area networks with email capability, tactical chat, secure video teleconferencing, and other systems is widespread, but these systems have not replaced organization-to-organization record messaging used for military command and control. Messages and message-like communications are still exchanged between organizations - not individuals. With organizations receiving thousands of messages per day, an improved automated system is needed to route messages to the appropriate persons within an organization for information, action, or decision making. For this Phase I effort, Sonalysts will research technologies and design, develop, and demonstrate proof-of-concept software to route incoming message traffic using profiles to individual users. The envisioned Navy User Managed Official Information Exchange (OIX) Profiler System (NUMOPS) will provide a robust open architecture routing system to ensure that users receive the messages they need, few if any they do not need, none they should not receive, along with the flexibility to adapt to changing requirements with minimal administrator activity.
