BACKGROUND

There are many Research Task Groups (RTGs) under different STO Panels/Group working on different aspects of defence, military and intelligence challenges, e.g. cyber defence, decision support, mission planning, modelling and simulation, visualization and visual analytics etc. Bringing members of the different RTGs together in a workshop will enable them to explore and benefit from each others work and develop collaborations to complement and enhance their respective efforts, as well as facilitating the sharing of data, tasks and tools. Visual analytics / visualisation together modelling and simulation and other forms of analysis tools / techniques are key enabling technologies which provide one of the possible links to bring these groups together.

OBJECTIVES

Visual analytics and visualization, modelling and simulation, and other forms of analysis tools/techniques may provide effective potential solutions to support users in exploring, analysing and understanding vast, complex and dynamic data, and thus support them in undertaking and completing their tasks, e.g. mission planning, situation awareness and decision support in the intelligence, defence and cyber domains. In addition, Canadas ARMOUR prototype may provide a convenient (services-oriented architecture (SOA)) environment to share existing/emerging tools and solutions in the future, and the Information Assurance/Cyber Defence Research Framework may provide a useful guide to organize, coordinate, and communicate the value of those tools and solutions to/among members of interested STO panels and groups. We propose a two to three-day workshop to bring together the members from the different RTGs, such as IST-096, IST-108, IST-110, MSG-117, SAS-102 and SAS-106, from the three different panels, namely IST, MSG and SAS. Participation from HFM and the CMRE is also welcomed. This will provide the means for the RTG members to present, discuss and share their work, problems and challenges in relation to the exploration, exploitation and utilization of massive, complex and dynamic data in their respective tasks and mission domains. The workshop will result in a raised awareness of their common and different problems and efforts, and the development of collaborations. Outcomes will include potential STO joint collaborations, sharing of data, tools and tasks, as well as the generation of new research ideas and RTG TAP proposal(s).

TOPICS

The topics will include but, not be limited to: ARMOUR prototype Cyber defence and security Current challenges in data exploration / exploitation Decision support Evaluation measures and metrics Research framework Hypotheses generation and validation Miss
