Abstract
As the U.S. Government continues to participate in post-conflict Stabilization and Reconstruction Operations (S&RO) around the globe, the ability to measure outcomes accurately as related to projected goals continues to rise in importance. The US Government employs a metrics tool developed though the Monitoring Progress in Conflict Environments (MPICE) project. The objective of this Phase I SBIR is to provide US military planners/analysts and their USG Interagency partners with additional capability to conduct analysis, establish clear traceability between goals and measures, and ultimately measure progress of stabilization efforts. Seasoned scholar practitioners will also support the refinement of the metrics framework and define attributes and measures associated with social well-being sector. The data fusion framework to link goals to metrics and integrate multiple data sources will be built on an infrastructure initiated by investments from Missile Defense, Air Force and Navy offices to provide robust decision traceability during acquisition decisions. The Phase I program will solidify the Phase II requirements by having selected OSD, S/CRS and multi-national stakeholders interact with the proof-of-concept graphical user interface and supporting database structure to conduct actual progress evaluations. The Phase II program will fully develop a prototype tool and validate its operation and use concept.
