Abstract

Together with our research institution partner, the University of Central Florida (UCF) Institute for Simulation and Training (IST), Sonalysts is pleased to submit this proposal to investigate the feasibility of creating a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework for correlation and fusion algorithms that drive scenario generation across many information domains (communication, imagery, tracking, etc.) in order to minimize the need for manual scenario creation. Fundamentally, Sonalysts understands that this topic is about ensuring that Fleet Synthetic Training (FST) scenarios present sailors with the same depth of intelligence-generated platform, multi-source event, data, and information as real-world operations have. During Phase I, our team will lay the foundation for an SOA-based scenario generation service by defining the data architecture on which the scenario generation service will rest and by developing a concept of operations for that service. During the Phase I Option period, our team will begin the transition to a Phase II SOA scenario generation prototype by conducting a preliminary requirements analysis. During Phase II, Sonalysts and UCF IST will prototype the envisioned service.
