Forward Operating Base Sustainment

Project Overview

Military sustainment (from deployment, through day-to-day operations, and finally retrograde) has historically been problematic. Weather and terrain (particularly in austere environments) as well as the availability of limited transport, security and manpower assets typify the primary impediments to sustainment flow. We will apply our asymmetric threat prediction tools to rapidly and effectively plan forced entry, early entry and non-contiguous forward operating base sustainment operations theater-wide.

July 4th, 2012 - The PTL starts work on new VDOT project

The PTL has begun work on a new project funded by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). VDOT maintains an extensive database of vehicular crash reports, each of which documents a vehicular accident using fixed-choice and narrative (textual) descriptions. We will be applying semantic analysis techniques to the narrative descriptions in support of quality control and knowledge discovery, with the ultimate goal of providing automatic, intelligent analysis of text for crash reports and other textual sources of interest to VDOT.

Open Research Positions

We are looking for highly ambitious post-docs, graduate students, and undergraduates to join us on our research projects. Please get in touch if you are interested in the work we do. In particular, here are projects that have open, fully-funded post-doc and graduate research assistant positions:

June 14th, 2012 - The PTL begins work on new project for Army - open research positions

The Predictive Technology Laboratory has been awarded a grant in collaboration with Technology Service Corporation to investigate sustainment and logistics of forward operating bases for the United States Army. Military sustainment (from deployment, through day-to-day operations, and finally retrograde) has historically been problematic. Weather and terrain (particularly in austere environments) as well as the availability of limited transport, security and manpower assets typify the primary impediments to sustainment flow.
