ITTC Project

Intelligent Information Dissemination Server (IIDS)

Project Award Date: 0000-00-00


Information needed by the warfighter is available from many different sources and in many different formats: unstructrued and semi-structured test (e.g., news wires, intelligence reports, etc.), structured data in dataqbase systems (e.g., logistics and inventory databases), and image and video data (e.g., weather maps from satellites, area maps and battlefield snapshots form UAVs or fly-bys, etc.) All this information needs to be integrated into a comprehensive scenario called the "Battle field Infosphere."

Our work supports the generation of this infosphere by providing intelligent dissemination of information to the warfighters. KU is working as a member of a consortium of Universities and companies, namely Global InfoTek, ISX, Lockheed-Martin, and Stanford University, that is designing and implementing IIDS.

The project involves research in AI, multiagent systems, adaptive and learning agents, CORBA, and heterogeneous databases.


Project Sponsors

Primary Sponsor(s): DARPA

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
