The objective of this proposal is to design software for the very successful multi-INT AquaQuIPS (AQ) data fusion processor in a Navy Tactical Cloud (NTC) environment at AQ s SPAWAR processor location using the new 384 plus node super computer. Tasks proposed are: Base Task 1A: Design and initially test a HADOOP/MapReduce based AQ sensor adaptor for a selected group of the 20+ existing AQ sensors depicted. Base Task 1B: Design and initially test the New Position AQ data fusion module when it is developed for a NTC distributed processing environment. The existing AQ position track fusion module that is a single server bottleneck , and the AQ DFP processing speed is expected to increase by a factor of ~ 30 when this task is completed. Base Task 2: Design a Hybrid Relational Data Base/Key-Value (H-RDB/KV) distributed, massive parallel processing AQ Data Fusion Processor (DFP) for the NTC using as many processing nodes as possible for automating an Abnormal Behavior (AB) design using sensor sources available for selected events. Option Task 1: Based on the Base Task results, AQ Team will produce an integration design for the PACOM JIOC and DCGS-N programs to enhance their performance.
