Designed to be user-friendly and intuitive for Marines, the MARCIMS software application is based on a semantic wiki similar to what is used for Wikipedia. Field information and data are collected in a structured format, leveraging a robust repository of social-cultural information in context. Unlike other applications, however, the MARCIMS wiki application also captures and identifies relationships within and between pages, making the data more accessible and understandable.

The goal of dPlan is to "aid mission managers by employing an intelligent, real-time decision engine for multi-vehicle operations and re-planning tasks". What this means is that dPlan helps folks make UAV flight plans based upon a number of different dynamic factors, and delivers the best plan for multiple assets both before and during the actual operation.

The stylus-equipped phones will be loaded with the Marine Corps Civil Information Management System, of MARCIMS, which will not only let them leave pen and paper behind but will also automate their processes, the Marine Corps said in a release.

“We used to have to do assessments by hand,” said Maj. Mike Ohleger, who has worked on developing the system for two years at Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico, Va. “For civil affairs it means taking an outdated, manual system, automating it and bringing it to the cloud.”

“dPlan will send the user’s required NIIRS value, as well as flight altitude and other details to ENVI Services Engine (ESE), and then ESE sends back a map indicating line of sight and NIIRS values for a grid of points surrounding the target location. Based on that grid, dPlan decides which UAV to assign to that target and where to put the waypoint. So if the user only requires a NIIRS 1 (least resolution) for a particular target, then the UAV does not have to fly as close and can still get a good enough picture of the target while minimizing fuel consumption. But if a NIIRS 9 is required, the UAV may need to fly directly overhead and/or change altitude.”

Cloud-based GEOINT analytics is a disruptive technology that shortens the time between data collection and decision-making. When analytics are performed in the cloud, there is more time to exploit GEOINT and other data, resulting in a more comprehensive understanding of the mission and quicker communication of essential information to those who need it most. Cloud-based GEOINT is faster than other currently available methods and is changing the future of defense and intelligence operations. Join this discussion to learn lessons from innovative small businesses who have already implemented cloud-based analytics to solve complex, real-world problems.

One of the many lessons learned from the numerous humanitarian assistance operations conducted in the past five years is that U.S. Government Agencies and their inter-governmental and multi-national partners do not have processes to allow the sharing of unclassified civil information. In a Humanitarian crisis, sharing of civil information in a timely matter with the appropriate organizations can mean life or death to thousands of civilians and the success or failure of our Corps' response. MARCIMS allows for the sharing of this unclassified information with approved partners operating on the ground around our Corps’ forces.

MARCIMS is an example of a "science and technology idea that takes hold… [and] is exercised in a way that supports both the needs of the Marine Corps," she added, "but also the partners that we're trying to develop capacity with in other countries, and then having something ready to use when disaster strikes."
