Research Institution
CHI Systems proposes an innovative system of analytical tools to assess the local economic conditions. The goal of our system would be to allow the Marine/Soldier to assess the current local economic status by identifying economic infrastructure, recognizing power brokers and their relationship to other entities in the Area of Operation, and tracking economic changes overtime to better understand and predict how to support economic development in the future. The underlying purpose of this analytical module is to provide the Marine/Soldier with simple and easy to use tools that will assist them in assessing changes in their local economy in a way that enables them to make sound and informed decisions when determining an appropriate course of action. In many developing countries, such as Afghanistan, where data availability and analytical ability is limited, these straightforward methods and tools can become powerful decision-making aids for local planners and analysts due to their comparatively simple logic, analytic clarity and easily accessible data requirements.
