Revolutionary Mission Planning and Link Analysis for the 21st Century Warfighter

The Orbis AARDVARK commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution is a collection of automated data fusion applications that provides analytical, situational awareness, and intelligence production capabilties. AARDVARK contains multiple web-based applications and analytics integrated together capable of operating in D/DIL environments. The AARDVARK solution is highly scalable and works on large enterprise clusters down to a single laptop.

Solution Highlights

The AARDVARK commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution was built using a modular, open standards approach in which each component can be swapped in or out based on the needs of the users or existing customer technology investments. Product applications include:

  • Advanced Analytics is a machinelearning-based natural language processing (NLP) technology used to identify and extract named entities and hidden semantic relationships. Advanced Analytics autogenerates entity graphs that can be exported to Link Analysis tools.
  • DataARCH® is a semantic mediation application designed to rapidly integrate disparate data sources and mediate data models and ontologies. DataARCH® comes with a plug-in that enables users to perform lifecycleontology management.
  • An internal Link Analysis application enables users to create, build, store, and share social network graphs. All work products are published and can be searched at the object level.
  • Geospatial Analysis is a map application that allows a user to perform searches as well as visualize object and document data about specific locations. Also, it allows for creation, import, and export of geospatial overlays and presentations.
  • Mission Planning capabilities use game theory to simulate scenario and predict enemy location, actions and mission outcome.
  • Plug-in for Mission Command integration.
  • Report Generation tool containing over 200 report templates and allows users to design additional custom report templates directly in the web-based interface.
  • Charts and Graphs application generates charts, graphs, and dashboards of data selected by users.
  • Search and Discovery application allows users to build complex searches across all documents and objects within the database including performing relationship based searches and within-document entity visualization.

Enterprise features

The AARDVARK solution makes use of the MarkLogic enterprise NoSQL platform to provide storage, indexing, and application services. The AARDVARK solution using MarkLogic provides the following enterprise features:

  • High-Availability/Disaster Recovery for all applications and data in the solution.
  • Automatic data replication across the entire enterprise.
  • Flexible replication so that users can take their important mission data with them into a disconnected, intermittent, latent (DIL) environment. Likewise, all applications are available to DIL users.
  • Role-based and attribute-level access control across all applications and data in the enterprise.
  • Open standard Application Programming Interfaces (APls) include Javascript applications using Node.js, EmberJS, XQuery, XSLT, Java and .NET client libraries, REST web service interface, WebDAV wire protocol, SOAP, SPARQL and SQL.
