STAR: Software Toolkit for Analysis Research

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper provides an update on the development of the Software Toolkit for Analysis Research (STAR). The goal of the STAR project is to produce a research tool that facilitates the development and interchange of algorithms for locating phenomena of interest in large quantities of data. The authors have applied this technology to the Space and Atmospheric Burst Reporting System (SAVRS) in support of the Knowledge Fusion Technologies project. Data from satellites was enhanced to contain evidence of nuclear detonations (nudets). the resulting data was analyzed to determine which algorithms were the most effective at detecting nudets; these algorithms will ... continued below

Description

This paper provides an update on the development of the Software Toolkit for Analysis Research (STAR). The goal of the STAR project is to produce a research tool that facilitates the development and interchange of algorithms for locating phenomena of interest in large quantities of data. The authors have applied this technology to the Space and Atmospheric Burst Reporting System (SAVRS) in support of the Knowledge Fusion Technologies project. Data from satellites was enhanced to contain evidence of nuclear detonations (nudets). the resulting data was analyzed to determine which algorithms were the most effective at detecting nudets; these algorithms will eventually be implemented in hardware to allow processing on board future Global Positioning System satellites. They wanted to not only solve specific problems from within this domain but also to solve them in a computational environment that would permit the developed tools to be applied to new domains or different problems in the same domain. This paper presents an overview of the software developed for this knowledge fusion project. They also present the results of applying the software to the enhanced satellite data.
