Abstract
Current and future non-kinetic operations require U.S. and coalition forces to understand the complex human, social, cultural, and behavioral (HSCB) dimensions of the battlespace. HSCB modeling capabilities aim to improve decision support in these socially complex environments; however, current models"outputs do not generalize across user communities, operational settings, or multiple HSCB contexts. To address these challenges, Aptima proposes to develop Adaptive Agents for Real-time Data-driven Visualization & Analysis for Relevant Knowledge (AARDVARK)an application that will support operational users in understanding the results of HSCB models via collaborative data-driven, agent-based visualizations at all levels of operational planning and effects assessment. At the end of Phase II, AARDVARK will be a fully developed visualization capability for translating HSCB model outputs into dynamic, effective visualizations for decision centric environments.
