Chief Architect for a computer-aided knowledge modeling system intended for transferring tradecraft analyst-to-analyst and for automatically hypothesizing future adversary events. The system will used by intelligence analysts to capture, share and grow their knowledge about adversary activities. The system will include the capability to automatically create rudimentary knowledge models based on prior data as well as a user-friendly and intuitive knowledge modeling user interface / environment for augmenting and expanding these knowledge models. The system will ultimately grow into one that will implement advanced analytics / algorithms to make recommendations to analysts and anticipate future adversary activities based on information contained within the knowledge models and relevant information that is continually updated by adjacent connected systems.
The Chief Architect is responsible for the implementation of structured architecture principles, and the adherence to standards and design patterns/elements for the services developed on contract.
