Military intelligence analysts face the monumental and escalating task of analyzing massive volumes of complex data from multiple, diverse sources such as physical sensors, human contacts and contextual databases. These analysts consume and process information from all available sources to provide mission-relevant, timely insights to commanders. To enhance this largely manual process, analysts require more effective and efficient means to receive, correlate, analyze, report and share intelligence.
DARPA's Oceans of Things program seeks to enable persistent maritime
situational awareness over large ocean areas by deploying thousands of
small, low-cost floats that could form a distributed sensor network. Each
smart float would contain a suite of commercially available sensors to
collect environmental data-such as ocean temperature, sea state, and
location-as well as activity data about commercial vessels, aircraft, and
even maritime mammals moving through the area. The floats would transmit
data periodically via satellite to a cloud network for storage and real-time
