Research project: Knowledge-Intensive Fusion for Improved Situation Awareness - Dormant - Dormant

Currently Active: 

AKTiveSA was a 3 year project that forms part of the Data and Information Fusion Defence Technology Centre (DIF DTC) initiative. Its aim is to explore knowledge-based approaches to information fusion and enhanced situation awareness in military operational contexts other than war (MOOTW), specifically humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

As part of the effort to improve situation awareness, AKTiveSA exploits domain ontologies that enhance information exchange and inter-operability between diverse agencies and user communities (e.g. NGOs, UN agencies, coalition forces, government departments, etc). It also introduces the idea of semantic filters that provide filtered views of the situation picture to support task-relevant information processing. Technological components, called knowledge monitors, support situation awareness by actively monitoring the situation picture for events that impact on current plans or problem-solving goals.
