Abstract:

Repetitive crimes, such as the production of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) or supplying illegal drugs, present a growing challenge to society. Physical structures that can support these crimes provide potentially important invariants. The crimes must be situated somewhere, and the physical structures present in any given location change slowly. Knowledge of those structures and their capabilities might therefore provide an effective lens through which to gain an accurate view, and therefore an effective means for attacking the problem. Aptima proposes to develop Facility Identification via Networks with Adaptive Links (FINAL) technology to find facilities associated with adversarial actions and discover the intent for their use. FINAL is based on previously developed technology that performs probabilistic network pattern identification based on partial knowledge about network nodes, links and their attributes. Assisted by an ontology of physical structures, FINAL creates hypothesis networks by combining networks of data describing actual conditions and more abstract network models of repetitive crimes.
