Abstract : This report presents the results of a Phase I SBIR funded by the Army Research Laboratory entitled 'Machine Translation of Battlefield Messages by Lexico-Structural Transfer'. The goal of this effort has been to explore ways of automatically translating battlefield messages. More specifically, the aims of the project have been as follows: identify requirements and opportunities specific to the application domain, show the feasibility of using software developed previously at CoGenTex and at the University of Pennsylvania in order to quickly assemble an MT system which addresses the specific requirements of battlefield messages, and identify the principal areas which require further work during a subsequent effort in order to transform the Phase I feasibility demonstration into a fully functional prototype system.
