VACCINE Developing Tools for Coast Guard Situational Awareness
September 3, 2010
On May 13, 2010, David Ebert and Tim Collins of VACCINE met with the United States Coast Guard in New London, Connecticut at the USCG Research & Development Center to discuss visual analytics needs and research collaborations. Dr. Isaac Maya of CREATE, another Center of Excellence, joined the meeting via conference call to discuss integration of visual analytics into CREATE’s optimized scheduling algorithms for adaptation to USCG mission needs.
Ebert and Collins also had the opportunity to join Coast Guard personnel on a sample patrol mission where they discussed operations with the patrol boat crew. The objective was to determine how VACCINE could assist the Coast Guard with tools adapted to real time situational areas. The group discussed several future collaboration opportunities between VACCINE and the U.S. Coast Guard. Work on the projects will commence as early as mid-June.
