Abstract
Current and future non-kinetic operations require United States and coalition forces to understand the complex human, social, cultural, and behavioral dimensions of the battlespace. The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Human, Social, Culture, Behavior Modeling Program (HSCB) was designed to help warfighters more effectively navigate operational environments in which we need an increasing awareness of the impact of socio-cultural factors. 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. Thus, there exists a need to visualize model inputs and outputs to translate them into operationally-relevant information in order to determine baselines, trends, and effective courses of action that will have the greatest impacts in the human decision space. To address these challenges, Aptima will expand upon our Phase I work to develop Adaptive Agents for Real-time Data-driven Visualization & Analysis for Relevant Knowledge (AARDVARK). AARDVARK is an information visualization framework instantiated within a visual analytics tool to promote an intuitive understanding of HSCB data for military leaders across multiple levels - from strategic analysis and operational planning to tactical decision making and effects assessment.
