Abstract
The aim of this project is to research and develop Information Operations Stream (IO-Stream) a technology to 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 Operations (IO) computer and psychological assets and targets in an Effects Based Plan (EBP). A primary objective of this project is to research the parallels between kinetic and non-kinetic attacks. We also developed the capability to incorporate a computer network topology graph into our Effects Based Plan (EBP), and to expand 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.
