Though subgraph matching has been extensively studied as a query paradigm in semantic web and social network data environments, a user can get a large number of answers in response to a query. Just like Google does, these answers can be shown to the user in accordance with an importance ranking. In this paper, we present scalable algorithms to find the(More)
In order to achieve the Army’s vision of network centric warfare (NCW), Soldiers must effectively and efficiently interact with tactical networks to maintain information dominance and complete mission objectives. Soldiers must possess a sufficient amount of trust in networks for adequate mission performance. We are investigating human trust in tactical(More)
Millions of people exchange user-generated information through online social media (SM) services. The prevalence of SM use globally and its growing significance to the evolution of events has attracted the attention of many agencies, from humanitarian non-government organizations (NGOs) and disaster response agencies to homeland security and(More)
Future capabilities of battle command systems and networked systems will increase Soldier situational awareness by providing access to information from various networked assets. We conducted a series of experiments at the United States Army Research Laboratory in Adelphi, MD and at C4ISR On-the-move (OTM) at Ft. Dix, NJ. Based on the quality of service of(More)
The paper presents a preliminary result of using cognitiveand behavior-based modeling framework to simulate a network of MANETs (Mobile Adhoc NETworks) as intelligent agents in a tactical battlefield. We demonstrate the efficacies of an agent-based modeling and the need for developing formal methods for multi-agent simulations from a system of systems (SoS)(More)
BACKGROUND: The ratio of protein to carbohydrate (P:C) consumed influences reproduction and lifespan, outcomes that are often maximized by different P:C intake. OBJECTIVE: Determine if reproduction in female Drosophila drives elevated P:C intake. Distinguish whether such a preference is driven by egg production or from male-derived sex peptides in seminal(More)
This report details a naturalistic study that investigates the effect of communications and sensor technologies used by Soldiers in a tactical organization to gain intelligence against an adaptive enemy threat. Communication and sensor technologies were used to simulate current and future force capabilities for networked systems. Soldiers comprised an(More)

Teams involved in Command and Control (C2) activities are being increasingly overwhelmed by the amount of information that is available to them, the diversity and complexity of the technologies that they need to use, and the nature and intensity of collaborative tasks. New socio-technical approaches for the design, development, and acquisition of future C2(More)
