New Award Announced: MySidewalk™

KBSI received notification that its proposal for the MySidewalk™ application has been selected for award by the Department of Transportation Small Business Innovative Research program.  “MySidewalk™” is a mobile application that will facilitate the crowd-sourced collection of sidewalk inventory and condition assessment data. The tool will utilize the recent advances in social networks, mobile data collection, and data mining to provide integrated sidewalk datasets. The tool will be developed with significant inputs from our partners, City of College Station, TX and Texas Transportation Institute.




CAKE now in Phase II

The Collaborative Analysis and Knowledge Exploration (CAKE) initiative, now in Phase II, is designing a semantic framework that supports information discovery, sense making, and presentation in dynamic, collaborative environments. In Phase II, KBSI is validating the capability to create semantic knowledge from multi-modal text and image data feeds using semantic tagging and collaborative visual approaches.


New Phase I: T-SAT

The Text Analytics Situation Awareness Toolkit (T-SAT) will allow users to quickly build text analytics-based systems that support the research and analysis of disparate, unstructured text sources. T-SAT uses an advanced object model that allows users to combine text analytics algorithms and create complex research and analysis scenarios.



Oracle NetBeans Blog

A recent blog post by Oracle Product Manager and developer Geertjan Wielenga highlights KBSI's CEPHIED VARIABLE technology. The technology was built on a NetBeans platform and uses third party libraries and custom built modules developed by KBSI. Analysts can use the technology to perform vulnerability assessments of cyber-physical systems (CPS) like electricity grids, health care monitoring systems, and the next generation battle space.

New Phase II: ADVICE

The ADVICE initiative is developing an experimental framework that improves the situational awareness of cyber systems under attack.  The initiative will provide innovative human-computer interaction and visualization technology for developing cyber security controls, improving cyber situational awareness, and evaluating cyber security control architectures.



New Phase I: TraceLogic

The TraceLogic initiative is developing methods, processes and algorithms that decipher the hidden logic of dynamic flight operations aboard Navy carriers. The TraceLogic technology will help the Navy to uncover and better understand the technical and pragmatic problems associated with flight operation performance.



Phase I Award: CDAT

KBSI's Cohort Development and Analysis Toolkit (CDAT) helps clinicians, healthcare administrators and public health professionals to compare the effectiveness of different clinical practices, including preventive and treatment modalities. CDAT lets the medical community better leverage their electronic data, facilitating cohort development and analysis across the entire healthcare spectrum: providers, patients, systems and processes, and case management/discharge planners.
