Big Data and Deep Analytics Applied to the Common Tactical Air Picture (CTAP) and Combat Identification (CID)

Ying Zhao, Tony Kendall, Bonnie Johnson

Abstract

Accurate combat identification (CID) enables warfighters to locate and identify critical airborne objects as friendly, hostile or neutral with high precision. The current CID processes include processing and analysing data from a vast network of sensors, platforms, and decision makers. CID plays an important role in generating the Common Tactical Air Picture (CTAP) which provides situational awareness to air warfare decision-makers. The Big “CID” Data and complexity of the problem pose challenges as well as opportunities. In this paper, we discuss CTAP and CID challenges and some Big Data and Deep Analytics solutions to address these challenges. We present a use case using a unique deep learning method, Lexical Link Analysis (LLA), which is able to associate heterogeneous data sources for object recognition and anomaly detection, both of which are critical for CTAP and CID applications.
