local software company has won a contract from the Office of the Secretary of Defense for $1 million
A local software company has won a contract from the Office of the Secretary of Defense for $1 million over the next two years. A Phase II SBIR effort, the HARVEST (Human and Cyber-Physical Agents for Recognition and Visualization of Systems Data) project will continue work in the area of optimization of cyber-physical systems. The DoD has increasingly emphasized automation of tasks that have been performed historically by humans, including data analysis. However, the cyber and physical systems are highly complex, resulting in complicated data output and providing a significant obstacle to human analysts' understanding. These problems must be addressed for the DoD to remain successful as technology continues to evolve rapidly. ECI will extend its successful initial research into a prototype solution that provides a significant step towards an improved data analysis and visualization platform.
