Abstract
With the sharp rise in asymmetric warfare over the last decade, our military"s focus has shifted from a standard, kinetic military approach to much more complex missions, stressing counter-insurgency (COIN) and Stability, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction (SSTR) operations. These new types of missions have pervasive effects at strategic, operational, and tactical levels, and affect decisions at every echelon of command. In addition to the ongoing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan that have been responsible for this shift, the recent uprisings in the Middle East referred to collectively as the Arab Spring further illustrate the likelihood of military operations in countries, such as Libya, where pre-conflict intelligence gathering is minimal and rapid collection and integration of information across disparate social-cultural data sources is imperative. Operators require tools that will enable them to easily visualize and compare these different data sources and draw conclusions that are most appropriate to their specific information requirements. Aptima proposes to develop Real-time Analysis of Motivation and Behaviors for Operations (RAMBO). RAMBO is a visual analytics environment that supports planning, decision making, and analysis. RAMBO is an intelligent dashboard to help analysts visualize multi-source information, collaborate and coordinate, and link high-level and low-level data.
