Research Institution
The aim of this project is to research and develop Information Operations Stream (IO-Stream) a technology that will enable force synchronization to achieve a desired effect in high tempo, dynamic environments. IO-Stream is an extension of our existing, demonstrated air tasking order (ATO) technologies to include Information Warfare (IW) computer and psychological assets and targets in an Effects Based Plan (EBP). A primary objective of this project will include research into the parallels between kinetic and non-kinetic attacks. The Phase I effort will focus on cyber operations, while future work could explore the effects of other non-kinetic attack methods such as PSYOPS. Another important objective will require the incorporation of a computer network topology graph into our Effects Based Plan, and expansion of the existing model to support the planning of IO assets. IO-Stream utilizes the same mechanisms in ATO-Stream to determine the optimal coordinated attack methods, and generate a viable plan for a synchronized attack.
