Institution: Northeastern University

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST13A-004
Budget: 07/23/14 - 07/23/16

The objective of this project is to evolve the RF device ontology developed in Phase I, design and implement a run time prototype system, develop a test environment and perform an evaluation of the approach developed in Phase I. Based upon the findings and success of Phase I, we propose to continue the work on the Dev2WALDO ontology, augment it ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-227
Budget: 06/23/14 - 03/19/15

ABSTRACT: It is anticipated that XML will heavily dominate the next generation of telemetry systems. The syntax of XML-based languages can be constrained by a schema that describes the structure of valid documents and allowable values of attributes using data typing facilities. However, even on the syntactical level, the schemas cannot express a...

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-T003
Budget: 04/18/12 - 10/17/12

System requirements elicitation is a time consuming process with an extremely high penalty for errors. Mistakes made in the requirements phase will cost 50 times more to fix while they are uncovered in the production phase as compared to fixing them in the requirements phase. VIStology and Northeastern University are proposing to develop an appr...
