Abstract

In Phase I of this SBIR, MTI contracted to conduct a feasibility study to develop an interface system capable of presenting data from multiple sources and of varying types in an easily understood and unambiguous manner. Under the terms of the Contract, MTI studied the feasibility of extending the renge of MuSE capabilities to incorporate the kinds of data required b the Navy, and demonstrated the feasibility of providing a standard, genetic MuSE software interface for all Navy data fusion needs. This proposal extends the work from Phase I in several areas. The goals for Phase II are to accommodate raw asynchronous real-time data from multiple sensors, to clearly demonstrate the capability to handle real-time data at multiple levels of detail, to enable users to readily distinguish between the raw date and the processed data, and to provide the means for users to actively interact with the data. The project software will be based on the MuSE software system and will provide these capabilities in a shared,. Collaborative environment. The project software and the MuSE system on which it is based will be installed at the NUWC.
