Metatomix Collaborating With NATO C3 Agency to Develop a Semantic Technology Solution for Integration of Data Sources Within a Maritime Scenario

Metatomix's Semantic Integration Platform to Play Key Enabling Role in Providing the NATO C3 Agency With a 360 Degree View of Vessels in a Maritime Situational Awareness Scenario

DEDHAM, MA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Metatomix, Inc., a leading provider of semantic solutions to justice and public safety, financial services, manufacturing and life sciences organizations, has been awarded a contract by the NATO Consultation, Command and Control Agency (NC3A) to collaborate in the development of a data integration framework using semantic technology that allows a 360 degree view of vessels of interest within a maritime scenario. Managed by NC3A under the direction of NATO's Allied Command Transformation (ACT), this initiative, contributing to the concept development phase of Maritime Situational Awareness, aims to provide a working demonstration of how semantic technology can be exploited across NATO to provide case-based investigation around entities of interest in real time by bringing disparate data together on demand into a single consolidated view.

"The partnership with NC3A announced today builds on the success our customers have had with our semantic solution in other industries and applications," said Metatomix CEO Jeff Dickerson. "The NATO project is a logical extension of the work we've done in areas such as government, where Metatomix's Semantic Integration Platform provides law enforcement officials at every level of government around the country with a 360 degree view of criminal subjects. We are proud to be a part of such an innovative, forward-looking initiative that can potentially bring new levels of security to maritime transportation throughout much of the world."

The Metatomix Semantic Integration Platform leverages a "rules engine" that dynamically assesses data, drawing logical inferences, and acting on the knowledge derived from this data. This enables the rapid development of case-based investigative solutions that are triggered by some form of event, which in turn triggers the collection and analysis of all relevant data, and logical presentation of the results to the right person at the right time.
