Title: Data Analysis Visualization and INtegrated framework for Cultural Intelligence (DAVINCI)
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Contract: N00014-11-M-0057
Award Amount: $99,777.00


Human Social Cultural Behavioral (HSCB) models and the output data they produce are urgently needed to support a range of operations from counter-terrorism to irregular warfare to Security, Stability, Transition, and Reconstruction (SSTR). The capability to visualize HSCB model outputs in an effective form is critical to the models' successful application by diverse end-users. In order to have the full impact on operations, HSCB visualizations must be incorporated into the context on an intelligence system so that they can be used to model the effect of Courses of Action (COAs). CHI Systems is currently developing the CultureMap system for ONR. CultureMap is intended to provide cultural intelligence preparation of the battlefield functionality. CultureMap has been selected for transition and MarineLink integration by the USMC Intelligence Analysis Systems (IAS) Program of Recorded. The proposed effort will seek to leverage the existing CultureMap framework in order to develop a Data Analysis Visualization and INtegrated framework for Cultural Intelligence (DAVINCI). DAVINCI will be developed as a major component of CultureMap to provide visualization tools for HSCB models, data ingestion tools for HSBC model outputs, and services for translating model outputs to decision-support products within the context of a warfighter interface undergoing operational transition.
