Research Institution
Cultural information, including the input/output from Human Social Cultural Behavioral (HSCB) models, is urgently needed to support a range of military operations from counter-terrorism and insurgency to Security, Stability, Transition, and Reconstruction (SSTR). In this Phase II effort, CHI Systems will develop a Data Analysis Visualization and INtegrated framework for Cultural Intelligence (DAVINCI) that will display militarily relevant entities, events, and Courses of Action (COAs) in a cultural context and allow users to gain familiarity with socio-cultural conditions in a population. CultureMap, a system used for cultural intelligence preparation of the battlefield functionality that CHI Systems is currently developing for ONR, has been selected for transition and MarineLink integration by the USMC Intelligence Analysis Systems (IAS) Program of Record. CHI Systems will leverage CultureMap in both the construction and transition of DAVINCI. Visualization tools and backend connectivity created for CultureMap will be used to perform data ingestion and visualization of HSBC model outputs. The bulk of the DAVINCI effort will entail the construction of new visualization capabilities to enhance users"understanding of HSCB model output, and new controls to support operational users as well as analysts.
