Semantic tech is being applied by military intelligence, too, in services like the Air Force and Marine Corp., which are testing or have live deployments of semantic systems developed by Modus Operandi. More>>
U.S. intelligence agencies use semantic analysis software to find potential security threats from massive volumes of incoming data. More>>
Big data is having an impact across government, though, in areas far afield from fraud detection. The data analysis company Modus Operandi received a $1 million Army contract in late 2012 to build a system called Clear Heart, which would dig through hundreds of hours of video — including footage from heavily populated areas — and pick out body movements that suggest what officials call "adversarial intent."

Modus Operandi was awarded a $1.5 million U.S. Marine Corps. contract to develop software to discover and analyze tactical intelligence.
Melbourne-based Modus Operandi will enhance and package its Blade Semantic Wiki software for transition into a number of Marine Corps analytics systems. The contract is called ieDENI (improvised explosive device denial).
Jeff Lessner is the new vice president of business development at Modus Operandi in Melbourne. Lessner will be responsible for all aspects of the company's business development efforts, including full oversight of sales and marketing efforts, market analysis, and management of business proposal production.
Computers search vast amounts of information, and do so very quickly, but a Melbourne defense contractor has created software that helps a computer narrow what it's looking for, adding to their power and usefulness.
Just ask the military. More>>
The Defense Department over the last decade has built up an inventory of billions of dollars worth of spy aircraft and battlefield sensors. Those systems create avalanches of data that clog military information networks and overwhelm analysts. More>>
I had the opportunity to chat with Peter Mozloom, VP, Cyber Solutions, Modus Operandi about cyber security here in the United States. This discussion included the threats and the status of our preparedness efforts and what we can do better. More>>
Modus Operandi and companies like it are scrambling to create natural language processing and textual analytics that allow machines and people to share a common language. More>>
Some of the nuts and bolts that will enable DCGS to exploit legacy capabilities are still under development, with a company called Modus Operandi working on several. MO is working on a system that would automatically reconfigure information from legacy systems into an intermediate format, from which it would be pulled by intelligence users and retranslated...

Mimicking the traffic associated with large live networks also presents challenges. "You need that type of traffic in order to be able to sniff out what vulnerabilities are out there," said Peter Mozloom, vice president for cyber solutions at Modus Operandi, a US-based software company that serves the defense and intelligence community. More>>
Modus Operandi, Inc. works on connecting disparate, human-generated intelligence and reports by using "natural language" science so the massive volume of verbal and written commentary generated by myriad intelligence sources yields actionable responses. The underlying theme between that pursuit and utility security is "information assurance," according to Peter Mozloom... More>>
For years, a company called Modus Operandi, Inc. has been developing software tools that help intelligence analysts extract bits-and-pieces of valuable information from a wide variety of printed materials by finding patterns and relationships among those pieces of data that can help the analyst identify terrorists and the plots they are hatching.

The concept of sharing does not always come naturally to human beings or legacy systems. But a service-oriented architecture effort within the U.S. Department of Defense's intelligence community is helping DoD in the effort to better share information as well as modernize systems. More>>
The framework this firm has developed, can allow an analyst to produce essential and immediate field ready intelligence within a timeline which enables effective counteraction e.g. data which normally takes several days to parse and interpret can now be parsed and interpreted within several hours or minutes.

One of the biggest problems that Defense Department intelligence analysts face isn't a lack of information — rather, it's finding the right information buried in the sea of data that exists on DOD's intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance networks. More>>
Modus Operandi Incorporated, Melbourne, Florida, has spent the last several years designing semantic software that tags text in a way that enables intelligence analysts to extract key information about designated entities. More>>
Companies like Modus Operandi have won DARPA contracts to take open source data and use it for tactical exploitation. More>>
"All types of sensors are getting cheaper and easier to deploy. The challenge we face is how to help analysts make sense of this overwhelming volume of data. To compound matters it's not just one type of data - human intelligence, imagery, signals intelligence, all of which come in different formats." More>>
"We're not trying to replace them (analysts)... We're trying to help them do their jobs better." His company has a tool that uses key words to analyze print matter More>>
By overlaying sensor data with human text documents, such as "… at 20:00 hours there was single vehicle activity at the Northern border crossing …", commanders will get a different view of the battlefield to aid in decision making. More>>
