As the U.S. Government increases participation in post-conflict Stabilization and Reconstruction Operations (S&RO) around the globe, the ability to understand the relationships between task completion and mission completion is critical. The US Government employs a metrics tool developed though the Monitoring Progress in Conflict Environments project. The objective of this Phase I STTR is to provide S/CRS analysts and USG Interagency partners with additional capability to conduct analysis and establish clear interdependencies between activities, tasks, and the desired outcomes. Seasoned scholar practitioners will also support the refinement of the analysis framework and maximize synergy between task outputs to mission outcomes and impact to enable more effective S&RO implementation planning. The data fusion framework to link task progress to the end-state via the integration of multiple data sources will be built on an infrastructure initiated by investments from Missile Defense, Navy and Air Force offices to provide robust decision traceability during acquisition decisions. The Phase I program will solidify the Phase II requirements by allowing OSD and S/CRS stakeholders interact with the proof-of-concept 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.
