CogniTech is developing a web portal for the virtual test and evaluation of Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) algorithms for the Air Force Research Laboratory Sensors Directorate. The portal application runs on a distributed server system and uses web-browser technology for its user interface. The primary portal technologies include XML, Java servlets, Java Server Pages (JSP), CORBA, SQL and Java applets. The web portal uses common and open system architectures across multiple locations containing heterogeneous hardware and operating systems. Extensive use of open source tools makes the resulting solution cost effective and portable.
This system will easily allow multiple users in locations around the world to effectively collaborate and test ATR software algorithms under a variety of different scenarios. The portal provides security through encryption and authentication. The web portal will communicate with servers using a secure CORBA Object Request Broker.
Various classes of registered users will have
access to and use different capabilities of the portal. New algorithms
and simulations may be registered within the system using tools provided
by the portal. Simulations and algorithms may be tested by visually
wiring components together within a workflow environment. The results
are stored in a database for possible further analysis and evaluation.
CogniTech Corporation has developed software
technologies to enable hand-held personal data assistants (e.g., Palm
Pilots) to capture clinical scale/questionnaire data and synchronize
that data on a centralized database. This tool utilizes XML templates
for the generation of electronic source documents based on a representative
set of clinical scales and questionnaires. The software application
In addition to the immediate clinical application, the software technology developed in this project is applicable to a broad range of portable data collection tasks.
The development of this technology was assisted
by a contract from the National Institute of Mental Health.
