Abstract
HUMINT includes text based message traffic, other text document sources composed by humans, particularly the free-form prose text of these messages/documents that can be processed to produce information of value, and other human-produced media types (e.g., video, pictures). Harmonia proposes a new tool, called HFWC V HUMINT Fusion without Coding V that allows analysts to design custom fusion workflows without coding or the need for a programmer to code algorithms to exploit collected, processed, and stored information. HFWC introduces a net-centric data store in a certain format that facilitates the transformation from human analysis to machine-processing, thus providing the essential link between HUMINT and fusion with Multi-INT. Harmonias solution also allows an analyst to define small reusable analysis apps, which we call iTel apps, for the intelligence community to rapidly disseminate and share new analysis methods to analysts, form a library of them, and automatically execute them to facilitate HUMINT_Multi-INT Fusion. A facility to create a corporate memory of analysis methods to additionally accelerate the work of all analysts will be included. The final solution will operate in a cross-domain environment to fuse unclassified data with classified data without compromising security.
