Significance: The asymmetrical and rapidly evolving threats posed by autonomous systems must be countered by tools capable of reducing the asymmetry and evolving with, and ideally ahead of, the threats. Accurate forensic analysis integrated with effective intelligence gathering, analysis, and sharing can prevent attacks before they occur, addressing part of the asymmetry. Developing tools, and the related TTPs, to rapidly push appropriate intelligence out to warfighters addresses much of the evolutionary challenge. Unfortunately, existing autonomous systems forensics tools are poorly integrated with intelligence gathering and dissemination systems.Proposal: We propose developing a SaaS platform for UAV forensic analysis and visualization to:1) Explore autonomous systems forensics as a service2) Demonstrate integration capabilities by integrating with existing visualization tools (e.g. AGI STK)3) Develop models and frameworks for bi-directional intelligence flowsThe resulting platform will pick up after "acknowledge, detect, identify, locate, track, disable" and provide "investigate, integrate".
