SBIR/STTR Award attributes
The United States Air Forceâ€™s ability to collect and store raw data continues to exceed its ability to effectively process it for integration and fusion. This leaves otherwise available answers to mission-critical questions undiscovered, unreported, and unincorporated into Commandersâ€™ decision cycles. Colvin Run Networks proposes implementation of its data fusion and integration solution called SIFTR: Systematic Information Fusion for Technical Reporting, powered by the Databricks Unified Analytics Platform in production with thousands of organizations worldwide. The SIFTR platform adds value across the air operations center (AOC) chain of command by enabling efficient data management, improving data-intensive man-in-the-loop processes related to F-35 products such as Mission Data Files (MDF), and providing new warfighter insights into their systems and areas of responsibility (AOR) through analysis of multisource data. SIFTR will significantly compress data processing timelines, enabling Air Force Commanders to compress decision timelines with greater confidence.
