Anytime Reasoning and Analysis for Kill-Web Negotiation and Instantiation across Domains (ARAKNID) - The C4I & Cyber Center supports Raytheon-BBN technologies providing state-of-the-art research on Applied ExplainableAI and Probabilistic Semantic Technologies. ARAKNID is part of the DARPA ACK Program (link: https://www.darpa.mil/program/adapting-cross-domain-kill-webs) and is being developed to manage data on various threats in real-time to help decisions involving weapons, sensors and military assets. Important decisions are ultimately made by a real person, but automating machine-to-machine interactions is a significant tactical advantage when seconds and minutes matter.
Semantic Testbed for Inference Enterprise Multi-Modeling: An inference enterprise model uses available information about an inference enterprise to predict performance of the enterprise.
C4I & Cyber Center projects have coordinated and supported NATO and SISO projects in Command and Control – Simulation Interoperation (C2SIM). It was formerly known as Battle Management Language (BML). Our work with NATO is described in our video and our standards work has reached the point of balloting in SISO. The C2SIM-Cyber project adds to the C2SIM server the ability to impress Cyber effects on C2SIM messages as they pass through the server, to support effective Army operational training in environments where Cyber attacks may occur.

STAR-TIDES and Collaborative Community Resilience (CCR) plan to help build individual and community resilience to natural and man-made emergencies while increasing economic and other opportunities in under-served communities
Probabilistic Ontologies: The C4I Center pioneered PR-OWL, a language for augmenting OWL ontologies with constructs for representing uncertainty, and collaborates with the University of Brasilia on an open-source tool for building and using PR-OWL ontologies.
Command and Control Simulation Testbed for International Collaborative Experimentation: Support by our industry partners and staffed as part of our international collaborative research.
SmartNode Pod: The SmartNode Pod is designed to establish battlefield interoperability and is to be flown on either manned or unmanned aircraft to establish an airborne hub that will increase ranges for communications as well as networks.
Innovation House: Support for a DARPA pilot using rapid "sprints" of code, developed by highly innovative teams, in support of image processing technologies.
