111 Data subject to restrictions on cover and notice page. 10.0 TENNESSEE STATE UNIVERSITY FINAL REPORT 112 Data subject to restrictions on cover and notice page. 10.1 Summary Tennessee State University (TSU) proposed a team to contribute to the Pilot year effort of the The Cyber Spectrum Research & Technology Development Virtual Environment (CSpec-DVE) program for Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC). The TSU proposed to develop a strategy to extract location data from large datasets of data, such as Twitter feeds. This approach was to contribute to the Pilot year scenario of identifying potential threats from the streams of data. The key issues are that there needs to be an approach that can scale for large datasets. This report presents the approach and subsequent module that the team was able to accomplish. With an extended effort, this project should be able to incorporate data stream reduction to focus on the Twitter streams of interest and the machine learning techniques that enable for richer detection. 10.2 Introduction 10.2.1 CSpec-DVE The Cyber Spectrum Research & Technology Development Virtual Environment (CSpec-DVE) program enables Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) cadets to contribute technically to Cyber, Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), and electronic warfare (EW) technology domains through a rigorous, product-oriented research-and-development (R&D) program. ROTC cadets, mentored by faculty or subject matter experts at their university, engage in academic
