History is replete with"intelligence failures"that were not intelligence weaknesses at all, but an inability to"put the pieces together"in time. Quintessentially, the 9/11 attack is an example, but it is merely the one most remembered. Pieces of intelligence were collected, like so many keys in a jar; but, without the validity and contextual issues resolved, the larger situations went unrecognized. Similarly, the validation and analysis of HUMINT reports is largely a manual process, tedious and burdensome, significantly delaying actionable information getting into the hands of the right person. The Navy can"t afford to continue to allow opportunities to be missed and ineffectual decisions to be made. 21st Century Systems, Inc. is pleased to propose to research and develop Augur, an intelligent HUMINT-processing capability. Augur will permit HUMINT collections to be rapidly corroborated and placed into context, creating opportunities and improving decisions through actionable intelligence. With extensive experience in researching and developing decision support technologies including within the intelligence domain, we represent the most qualified company to research and develop this end-to-end HUMINT analysis capability. And, with our high commercialization rating, we are also the company most likely to get it to the field.
