Securboration's innovative approach is centered on the development of a Community of Exchange (CoEx) which represents the operational requirements and semantic dependencies that drive the operators' effective use of information to perform effects-based assessment. The Community of Exchange allows for a robust model that representation the combat assessment domain to be created and used to validate the operational process. The validation includes cognitive aspects, operational usability, and capability-based measures. With an extensive operational background and expertise in Air & Space Operations Center (AOC) operations, effects-based planning and assessment, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and modeling and simulation, Securboration is uniquely suited to "explore the implications of effects-based operations on the conduct of combat assessment" and to provide assessment tools appropriate to EBO. Securboration will leverage existing technologies and previous work on effect-based planning and assessment in the AOC environment to develop these assessment tools. In Phase I of this SBIR, Securboration will "identify and define opportunities for inserting intelligence analyst-aiding technologies appropriate to the conduct of combat assessment tasks in the context of effects-based operations." Securboration's innovative solution will be driven by: 1) "cognitive task analyses" of assessment processes "to identify analyst requirements;" 2) "capability-based measures of effectiveness. to support the evaluation of effects-based assessment performance;" and 3) conceptual models of "intelligence analyst-aiding technologies appropriate to the conduct of combat assessment tasks
