Abstract:

The proposed research effort recognizes the growing importance of open-source intelligence for evolving military operations, and is designed to enhance the capability of intelligence analysts to develop inferences from open information sources that can be acted on with confidence in the face of future military challenges. Specifically, the objective of the proposed research is to design and develop an innovative training system that will teach intelligence analysts to build critical thinking skills. System development will address the principal cognitive challenges of intelligence analysis, identify the critical thinking skills required to overcome these challenges, apply appropriate training principles and guidelines, integrate practical application with instructional software through the incorporation of simulations and feedback, comply with SCORM and HLA standards, and involve the active participation of the intelligence analysis community.
