This paper describes the architecture and deployment of a software platform for information fusion, knowledge hosting and critical decision support. The work has been carried out under the TRIDEC project (www.tridec-online.eu), focusing on geo-information fusion and collaborative decision making. Four technologies underpin the architecture: 1) A message oriented middleware, for distributed communications; 2) A leveraged hybrid storage solution, for efficient storage of heterogeneous datasets and semantic knowledge; 3) A generic data fusion container, for dynamic algorithms control; and 4) A single conceptual model and schema, as systems' semantic meta-model. Deployment for industrial drilling operations is described. Agility is manifested with the ability to integrate data sources from a proprietary domain, dynamically discover new datasets and configure and task fusion algorithms to operate on them, aided by efficient information storage. The platform empowers decision support by enabling dynamic discovery of information and control of the fusion process across geo-distributed locations. © 2013, IGI Global.
