Multi-INT Research Initiatives at The Naval Postgraduate School


The Naval Postgraduate School Center for Multi-INT Studies (CMIS) has a bold vision to transform the field of intelligence and seeks to vastly improve the current state of the art in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). To this end, CMIS supports innovative, independent research that has the potential to expand knowledge in related areas. As real-time, accurate and actionable intelligence products are demanded by analysts, warfighters, and decision makers, linear, human-intensive processes are no longer sufficient. The capabilities of current and future adversaries and the dynamism and complexity of the environments in which they operate necessitate vast improvements in the timeliness and execution of intelligence-cycle processes. Humans do not have the cognitive ability or the time to analyze the vast quantities of multi-source, multi-dimensional data that are now available. Revolutionary decision support, situational awareness, sensemaking, inferencing, reasoning, and visualization capabilities must be employed to expediently unlock the information contained in these myriad streams of data. CMIS envisions a future where cognitive technologies can anticipate strategic and tactical information needs, perceptively orchestrate distributed sensors across every domain (cyber, human, terrestrial, air, sea, space, etc.), and deliver timely and accurate recommendations to kinetic and/or non-kinetic agents (human and/or machine) to employ required actions. The transformative technologies of interest are: â₏¢ Representing targets as systems â₏¢ Orchestrated resource management â₏¢ Computational models for sensemaking â₏¢ Human-computer symbiosis â₏¢ New approaches for establishing/addressing the scientific underpinnings of Multi-INT â₏¢ Maritime Domain Awareness/Anomaly Detection

Applicant Eligibility
All responsible sources from U.S. academia, U.S. research institutions, U.S. laboratories outside the Federal Government, U.S. industry, and accredited foreign universities may submit proposals under this BAA. Federally Funded Research & Development Centers (FFRDCs), including Department of Energy National Laboratories, are not eligible to receive awards under this BAA. U.S. Government schools of higher education, Navy laboratories and warfare centers as well as other Department of Defense and civilian agency laboratories are also not eligible to receive awards under this BAA and should not directly submit proposals in response to this BAA. If any such organization is interested in research described herein, the organization should contact University Affiliated Research Centers (UARC) are eligible to submit proposals under this BAA unless precluded from doing so by their Department of Defense UARC contract. Some topic areas may cover export-controlled technologies. Research in these areas is limited toâ₏œU.S. personsâ₏ as defined in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) -22 CFR §120.1 et seq.
