Deep Web Technologies' New MultiSearch Interface Accelerates DTIC Online

"Smart" clustering and search of federated searches creates richer user experience for U.S. Department of Defense website

SANTA FE, N.M., Oct. 21, 2008 — Deep Web Technologies has launched a dramatically updated interface for the DOD's Defense Technical Information Center's new DTIC Online research portal ( The interface, known as MultiSearch, offers four defense search channels from a single drop-down menu, allowing users to access the most comprehensive collection of scientific and defense-related resources in one simultaneous search. The search employs the newest version of Deep Web Technologies' Explorit Research Accelerator, which provides best-in-class "smart" clustering, encyclopedia sidebars from Wikipedia, and EurekAlert! science news.

"Given the sheer number of databases MultiSearch is searching, it's one of our biggest and most exciting projects publicly available. We're proud of the improvements to the DTIC search experience," said Deep Web Technologies founder and CTO Abe Lederman. "The user is exposed to not only richer results, but significantly greater search accuracy."

DTIC supports the U.S. Department of Defense and its community by centralizing scientific, technical and related defense-information services, databases, and systems. Its new DTIC Online significantly expands the breadth of information scanned and retrieved with its four search channels: Department of Defense websites, DTIC Public Scientific and Technical Information, the DTIC Website, and Federal Scientific and Technical Information. MultiSearch also includes a federated search of other federated search websites, including and – both powered by Deep Web's Explorit Research Accelerator – and therefore consolidates a number of advanced search engines within one search, delivering results users might never have uncovered.

"It's especially exciting to see how the publicly available content we federate for one customer can add richness to the next customer, and as well as increase the value and usage of that first customer," said Mr. Lederman.

The upgraded MultiSearch portal adds powerful new features that enrich the user experience and value of research. By taking advantage of Explorit's "smart clustering," MultiSearch provides unique relevance-ranked clusters that allow users to see their results organized by topic. MultiSearch also retrieves and displays entries from Wikipedia and EurekAlert! that complement the search experience. Explorit delivers not only relevant results, but pathways and context to guide users to more relevant search results. Simply put, Deep Web's Explorit technology enables DTIC's MultiSearch to be one of the most powerful research tools available for publicly available science- and defense-related information.

Content providers and publishers rely upon Deep Web's federated search technology because it enables fee-based or proprietary content to be searched publicly on the Internet, without giving it away. This content, considered by many to be the most valuable, is not searchable by the public search engines, including Google, Yahoo! and others.

DTIC Online was created specifically for the defense community and is available free at MultiSearch can be accessed from the pull-down menu by selecting "Federal S&T" or by going directly to The search is free and much of the content is available at no cost. Some content – like that accessed through Scitopia – can be purchased on a pay-per-view basis or accessed by a subscription.
