Abstract
Tactical Warfighters demand rapid information fusion capabilities to develop and maintain accurate situational awareness and understanding of dynamic enemy threats in asymmetric military operations. The ability to extract meaning in relationships between people, objects, and locations from a variety of text and multi-source datasets is critical to proactive decision making at the Brigade and below level. The Social Network Analysis Realization and Exploitation (SNARE) approach to social network modeling provides three major advantages to current methods: 1) Automates the construction of detailed multi-mode social networks, 2) Models entities as complex systems of attributes, and probabilistic rules that can accommodate uncertainty and incompleteness in the source data, and 3) Provides automated support for reasoning about complex social structures.
