Warfighters and emergency first responders frequently operate in environments where personnel are required to quickly comprehend and react to rapidly-changing situations. The Edge Analytics system offers near real-time situational awareness (seconds to minutes) by analyzing social media and other high-velocity sensor data streams to provide actionable intelligence, trends, and summaries.
Our goal is to bring real-time analysis of data to tactical and emergency personnel by
The Edge Analytics System
Our research is dedicated to overcoming several challenges: large data volumes (e.g., 500 million tweets per day);time sensitivity –particularly in tactical or crisis environments;data veracity - establishing trust in data, and multi-sensor fusion –particularly open source with other forms of intelligence.
