Milcord presents Risk-based Route Planning at the Military Logistics Summit

Milcord, LLC. - WALTHAM, MA – Milcord LLC presented and demonstrated its ‘Risk-Based Route Planning for Sense and Respond Logistics’ at the Military Logistics Summit in Vienna VA, June 8 – 10.   The presentation covered the technology behind Milcord’s Adaptive Risk-based Convoy Route Planning solution; an advanced technology demonstration developed in multiple SBIR contracts with the Army Geospatial Center and Office of Secretary of Defense.  Milcord’s system is designed to address concerns about route safety and predictability.  Approaches based on ‘minimal distance’ routes are deterministic and pose a security risk because they can easily be determined by the adversary. In contrast, ‘minimal risk’ route planning is not deterministic (changes with events on the field), which gives a better protection against predictability by the adversary. The risk surface (computed per road segment) changes with every incident, intelligence report, weather, traffic, etc., which, in turn, affects the route minimal risk route.

Milcord awarded Phase II contract from Air Force Research Laboratory to develop Campaign Planning Tool

Milcord, LLC. - WALTHAM, MA – Milcord LLC began work on its ‘Predictive Societal Indicators of Radicalism’ project, a Phase II SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) R&D contract to develop a Campaign Planning Decision Support Tool for COIN (Counterinsurgency) and Stability Operations.  The project is funded by Air Force Research Laboratory.  In this project Milcord will use its CKM (Course of Action Knowledge Management Framework) to build a data and knowledge management system, Human Terrain and Geospatial models, and advanced analytics that will allow COIN and Stability Operations teams to prepare the human and physical terrain, discover patterns, predict course of action, and plan campaigns across logical lines of operation. Milcord is joined in this effort by Prof. David Cingranelli of the CIRI Human Rights Data Project and his team.

Milcord awarded Phase II contract from Air Force Research Laboratory to develop software learning agent for AOC operations

Milcord, LLC. - WALTHAM, MA – Milcord LLC commenced work on its ‘Commander’s Learning Agent (CLearn) ’ project, a Phase II SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) R&D contract sponsored by Air Force Research Laboratory.  In this project Milcord will use its CKM (Course of Action Knowledge Management Framework) to build a software learning agent for AOC operations. Traditional decision aid software requires the manual input of commander’s intent. There is a need to automatically capture the commander’s current mission, augment with contextual knowledge, and assign priorities to resources supporting the commander’s mission.

Milcord delivers ‘NextGen’ Web 2.0 version of ‘Information Bridge’ service for DOE

Milcord, LLC. - WALTHAM, MA – Milcord LLC delivered a  ‘Next Generation’ concept prototype of DOE’s Information Bridge search service. The prototype was developed under an SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) R&D project sponsored by DOE’s Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI). The goal of the project is to develop search extensions to the Information Bridge service that support authoritative sources of Web 2.0 ‘rich media’ content types (videos, blogs, podcasts) relevant to the field of renewable energy. In the NextGen system, a user query returns not only text documents ranked by relevance but also relevant videos, blogs, and podcasts based on their authority score.
