Data scientist Mark Rintoul led a team ofÂ Sandia Labs researchers that built a code for automated monitoringÂ of motion and trajectories through theÂ Pattern Analytics to Support High-Performance Exploitation and Reasoning initiative, the laboratory said Nov. 17.
TracktableÂ will work to analyze movements of people, ships or aircraft, according toÂ Sandia Labs.
A research team led by Sandia computer scientist Randy Brost has created a software system that works to convert pixels of remotely sensed images to graphical models.
GeoGraphyÂ is designed to employÂ nodes and edges in graphs to analyzeÂ the relationship between multiple objects or distance and time.
TheÂ researchers are looking to integrate motion and trajectories into the GeoGraphy system.
“The purpose of these codes â€” GeoGraphy and Tracktable â€” is to assist humans, not to replace them or to automatically do their jobs,” Brost said, adding he believes the tools can help people “be more effective in dealing with large sets of evidence.”
The PANTHER initiative is being funded through the Laboratory Directed Research & Development program.
Lockheed Martin‘s Sandia Corp. subsidiary runsÂ the national laboratory for the U.S. Energy Department.
